Standard Liege has signed young striker Tony Watt from Celtic.

The Belgian side has paid the Hoops £1.2million for a five-year deal for the 20-year old forward who spent last season on loan with Pro League rivals Lierse SK.

Watt scored eight goals in 34 appearances for Celtic, including one against Barcelona in a 2-1 Champions League win in 2012, and admitted it was a bittersweet moment to be leaving the Glasgow giants.

During his tumultuous loan spell with Lierse last term, the former Airdrie United young gun netted nine goals in 18 appearances in all competitions.
