Former Arsenal and Sweden midfielder Fredrik Ljungberg has joined Celtic on a week-long trial. ljungberg can be signed on January 1st, in time for the Old Firm game the next day. The 33-year old spent the last two years in the MLS, playing for the Seattle Sounders and Chicago Fire. A free agent, he has represented his national team on 75 occasions, playing at the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, as well as Euro 2004 and 2008, before retiring after Sweden's early exit in 2008.

Is this a good signing for the Hoops, or will he flop at Parkhead?

Could be an inspired signing by lennon and I heard they are after one of Ljungberg teammates now.

Could be either very good or very bad , obviously not the player he was but may still be able to do a job for the Celtic

even with a mature age he will rip the SPL to bits.

Hope they give him a nice long 9-year contract, £30,000 a week contract, with a hefty signing on fee :) Done the square root of **** all since leaving Arsenal, and his legs went when he hit 30. :D

In 09/10 he made 37 appearances for Seattle and since then has made 15 appearances for Chicago Fire. He certainly isn't short of game time.

He lost it years ago, not as good as everyone thinks anymore.

He lost it when he left Arsenal.

However, I certainly think he's still got a bit of quality in him to help Celtic out in the SPL when they need it.

must be doubt there then that he still has it in him or he would be signed up straight away

On second thoughts , this just seems like a marquee signing from Lennon. Don't see him setting the league alight , probably be happy to sit on the bench and wait for his big pay-cheque

Kapo - 30/31
Rosario - 32
Ljundberg - 33

More panic buying from Lennon imo. Rangers should destroy Celtic at Ibrox on Sunday, anything less is not acceptable. This is one of the worst Celtic teams i have seen since the days of Larsson and co. With Rangers ever growing stronger now and celtic growing considerably weaker, the takeover of Rangers could spell the end for Celtic.
