The defender said: “As a Celtic supporter, I’m thrilled to be joining the club and playing alongside Irish internationalist Ruesha Littlejohn as well as the other great players in the squad.

“The standards in Scotland and Ireland are similar, but I’ve found the games to be more competitive here. I was looking for a change for the new season and am delighted to have signed for Celtic.”

Keeva is the second new signing as the Hoops prepare for the 2018 summer season beginning next month a she joins Claire Adams who signed in December.
