Former Celtic forward Bahrudin Atajic has told the Swedish media he no longer receives bonuses in Lithuania compared to his time in Scotland.

The 23 year old came through the Celtic youth system, but failed to make an impact when he stepped up to the senior team.

Speaking to Malmo24, Atajiv was asked about what he currently earns with Zalgiris Vilnius after leaving Celtic in 2014: – “I’m doing well. The teams at the top of the table pay reasonable wages. However, it’s not like in Celtic with bonuses and so on. We don’t have this.”

Atajic spent three years in the Celtic youth academy after joining the Scottish Premiership side from Swedish club Malmo in 2010.

The 23 year old was given his senior debut by former Celtic manager Neil Lennon during the 2012/13 season, but went on to play just 4 games for the Hoops.

However, Atajiv did manage to get on the score sheet for Celtic in his brief time in the first team, when he netted against Motherwell in a 5-0 victory.

The player left Celtic Park in 2015 to play in the Finnish league, before his move to Lithuania last year.

Currently Celtic have just the one Swede in their squad in Mikael Lustig.
