Nottingham Forest have brought Celtic defender Kelvin Wilson back to the club on a three-year deal.
The 27-year-old moved to Celtic Park in 2011, having spent four years at hometown club Forest.
After struggling in his first season in Scotland, he played a key role under Neil Lennon last term, making 50 appearances as Celtic cruised to the title and impressed many with a UEFA Champions League win over Barcelona, which Wilson played in.
The defender had featured in all of Celtic’s Champions League qualifying fixtures so far this season, including Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Elfsborg which sealed an aggregate triumph over the Swedish side.
And he insisted he was only willing to leave the Glasgow club for a special offer, such as a return to Forest.
Wilson told the club’s official website: “It’s nice to be back. I’m delighted to get it all sorted and I can’t wait to get started to be honest.
“I wouldn’t have left Celtic for just anyone, it had to be the right club. And no club fitted the bill better than Nottingham Forest.
“I’ve been at Notts County, Preston and Celtic but looking back and trying to pick a spell I enjoyed the most, even though I played in the Champions League with Celtic, I would have to say it was here.
“Out of everything, I have probably missed the fans the most. I love playing at the City Ground.
“I know people talk about Barcelona, this game and that game, but I just love match days at the City Ground.”
