DONE DEAL Celtic sign Matt O’Riley

20 January 2022

Celtic Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Matt O’Riley, who has joined the club from MK Dons on a four-and-a-half-year deal, subject to international clearance, which will see him remain at the club until at least the summer of 2026.

The highly-rated 21-year-old midfielder becomes Ange Postecoglou’s fifth signing of the January transfer window, following the arrival of Daizen Maeda, Yosuke Ideguchi, Reo Hatate and Johnny Kenny.

Matt came through the Fulham Youth Academy and made his first-team debut for the club back in August 2017 at the age of just 16. He made five appearances in total for the club before signing for MK Dons in January 2021.

Since then, he’s gone on to make 52 appearances for the English League One club, scoring nine goals including seven this season, helping push MK Dons to fifth in the table.
