Manchester City striker Georgios Samaras has completed his move to Celtic.

Samaras said the influence of manager Gordon Strachan and "family atmosphere" at Celtic had persuaded him to stay at the club.

"Celtic are one of the best teams in Europe, with a very distinguished football manager," he told Celtic's official website.

"I am waiting for the start of the new season so I can help my team to repeat the successes of the last season. With the help of the fans, it is my view that we will achieve great things."
