Bjarnason agrees Celtic extension
Theodore Bjarnason
Bjarnason started the last game of last season for Celtic
Icelandic midfielder Theodore Bjarnason has signed a new three-year contract with Scottish champions Celtic.

The 20-year-old made his first-team debut in the final SPL game of the season against Hibernian.

Bjarnason told Celtic's website: "Obviously, I was looking for some kind of sign that the club wanted me to stay, a sign that I had a future here.

"And that came when the manager included me in his team for that game at Easter Road."

Bjarnason moved to Celtic Park more than two years ago from KR Reykjavic and recently won his first call up for Iceland.

He came on as a substitute in the embarrassing 1-1 draw with Liechtenstein and he started the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Sweden.

But he was enthusiastic about his future with Celtic.

"This is a fantastic club, with great supporters, a great stadium and a great history," he said.

"And, ever since I moved here, I have wanted to play first-team football at this club.

"I've now been given a three-year contract and will be looking to play more games in the first team next season."
