Celtic Signs Ninja

Koki Mizuno, a 22-year-old Japanese winger, is now free to join Celtic after he was granted a work permit by an appeals panel after his initial request was denied (non-EU players have to have played 75% of his country's senior 'A' matches in the last 2 years; Mizuno is uncapped).

Which is great for all parties concerned, I guess, but I just love this picture of him as he's boarding his plane to leave Japan.

Update: Figure since most people haven't seen the kid play, I should include a YouTube clip (standard caveat: YouTube can make Gary Neville look like Garrincha).
