Australian manager Graham Arnold has hailed the loan move of Daniel Arzani to Celtic as “fantastic”.

Manchester City signed Arzani earlier this month after an impressive season at Melbourne City in the Australian League.

Arzani also played at the FIFA World Cup where he showed flashes of brilliance.

After signing for Manchester City, Celtic announced that the 19-year-old would join the club on a two-year loan deal.

Fox Sports states the Graham Arnold has been full of praise for the move.

“Going to Celtic with (manager) Brendan Rogers I think is a fantastic move and Tommy Rogic is there with him to help him on his way,” he said.

“The Scottish league will be a good step up for him. What’s important is the kid gets game time… they (Celtic) play close to 60 games a year, I imagine Daniel will get a lot of game time.”

“Daniel Arzani is a great news story at the moment but Daniel is really only three months into his career…He’s got something that a lot of Australian youngsters don’t have and that’s flair.

“You can give him the ball and he’s great in one v one situations, and he can make things happen as he did at the World Cup when he came on. It’s about transferring that into 90-minute games.”
