Celtic release midfielders Zheng Zhi and Koki Mizuno


Lennon pleased at Mulgrew capture

Celtic have released China captain Zheng Zhi and midfielder Koki Mizuno ahead of the new season.

Zheng, who can play in defence and midfield, was signed by Tony Mowbray after leaving English League One outfit Charlton last summer.

Mizuno joined the club from J-League side JEF United in January 2008 during Gordon Strachan's spell at Celtic.

But neither player forced their way into the first team and do not figure in manager Neil Lennon's plans.

Zheng made 16 first-team appearances for Celtic, while Mizuno clocked up 11 during his spell at the club.
