Biography

On Friday 26th August 2016, we announced the signing of Stefan Johansen from Celtic for an undisclosed fee.

The Norway international arrived on a three-year deal, with a Club option for a further 12 months.

Johansen joined FK Bodø/Glimt in his homeland as a youngster, and was just 16 when he made his senior debut for the club. He later moved on to Strømsgodset IF where he enjoyed tremendous success, finishing second in the Tippeligaen in 2012, before winning the competition the following year.

In January 2014 the central midfielder completed his move to Celtic for a reported £2m, and he won the Scottish Premiership title in each of his two-and-a-half seasons at the club.

He was named Celtic’s Player of the Season and joint Players’ Player of the Season for 2014/15, and departed having made 114 appearances and scored 20 times.

Johansen netted on his Norway debut in August 2013, and has now represented his country on 29 occasions.
