Bristol City reject Icelandic ace
Kjartan Finnbogason in action for Celtic Reserves
Kjartan Finnbogason joined Celtic from KR Reykjavik
Bristol City have decided not to give a deal to out-of-contract Celtic striker Kjartan Finnbogason after a trial spell at Ashton Gate.

The Iceland under-21 international turned down a new deal at Celtic Park to further his first-team chances.

He played 45 minutes in all three of City's games on their pre-season tour.

City boss Gary Johnson told the club website: "He would have been behind two or three of our current lads in terms of getting a first-team place."

Finnbogason, 21, has also had a trial spell at Swedish club IFK Gothenburg.

He arrived at Celtic Park from KR Reykjavik along with midfielder Theodor Elmar Bjarnason in December 2004.
