Former Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic has finally found himself a new club, 15 months after leaving the Scottish giants.

That’s what Transfermarkt report today after the defender’s return to HNK Gorica was confirmed by the Croatian club.

Simunovic left Celtic last summer after five years at the club following a €7.5m move from Dinamo Zagreb back in 2015.

He managed 126 appearances for the club in that time, with injuries preventing him from adding to that figure over the years.

His time in Scotland was a successful one, though, winning the Scottish Premiership for five straight years, as well as three Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup titles.

He’s been without a club since his departure last year but has now made a return to him homeland, signing a one-year deal with HNK Gorica.

The move means they ‘became championship favourites’ in the Croatian first division, joke Transfermarkt, courtesy of the defender’s ‘extremely successful career’.

With nine championship titles in eight years as a professional, Simunovic is one of the most successful over 25s in the game, with only Kingsley Coman and enjoying a better record.

He’ll now be hoping for similar success with his new clubs, having been forced to wait 15 months after leaving Celtic to get back in the game.
