Dorus De Vries Signs One Year Contract Extension With Celtic

share on:

Celtic have announced that Dorus de Vries has signed a contract extension which will see him remain at the club until the summer of 2019.

The 36-year-old goalkeeper signed for the Hoops in August 2016 from Nottingham Forest, linking up again with Brendan Rodgers, having previously worked with the manager at Swansea City.

De Vries emerged as number one choice at Parkhead before a series of errors allowed Craig Gordon to take his place back between the sticks.

Since then, the Dutchman has had to settle for a place on the bench, impressing in a 1-0 win over Dundee last month.

But the 36-year-old has extended his stay at Celtic until 2019 after agreeing to a one-year extension.

Speaking to the club’s official website, de Vries said: “As a player you want to be at the best clubs and Celtic is certainly up there.

It’s a great squad to play in, great technical staff who are enjoyable to work with as well, and, for me, everything is here to keep on going and make sure that we keep bringing trophies to this club.

“Stevie Woods is a great goalkeeping coach. I worked with him in the past and it’s a great pleasure to be working with him again.

“Craig Gordon, Conor Hazard, Ross Doohan, and there are a couple of youngsters as well, are all great.
