Tilio, who has seven international caps, scored 20 goals for Melbourne in 82 games.

“I’m ecstatic that I’m coming over to Europe, coming to such a big club and team, and I’m super-excited,” Tilio told Celtic TV.

“It’s an amazing opportunity for myself and having seen Aussies go over there and do well at such a prestigious club, it’s a massive opportunity for myself that I couldn’t deny.”

Tilio will not be joining his former international teammate Aaron Mooy at Celtic Park following the midfielder’s retirement announcement on Friday.

However, the departure of Portuguese winger Jota, who has been linked with a move to Saudi club Al-Ittihad, could make his road to the first team easier under Rodgers.
