Celtic have thanked and praised Joe Ledley following his transfer to Crystal Palace.

The 27-year old Wales international has departed Celtic Park after arriving from Cardiff City in July 2010 to join the Eagles on a three-and-a-half-year deal for a reported fee of £2.5million.

Upon his exit from the Glasgow giants, where he won three Scottish Premier League titles and a Scottish Cup, Ledley was adulated by the club and a selection of his teammates via Twitter.

And former teammate Gary Hooper, now with Norwich City, was looking forward to coming up against his the Palace new boy.
