Reo Hatate: New Celtic man honoured with eye-watering merchandise range
New Celtic signing Reo Hatate has been honoured by his former club with his own merchandise range.
The 24-year-old joined Celtic from Kawaski Frontale on a four-and-a-half year deal on New Year’s Eve – one of three Japanese players to sign that day, alongside Yosuki Ideguchi and Daizen Maeda.
Hatate, who can play in a variety of positions, was a popular figure at Kawasaki Frontale and the J-League outfit has released commemorative items wishing him well in Scotland.
Supporters can buy keyrings with the message “Go to Scotland” emblazoned on them for £8.50, while there is a T-shirt adorning Hatate’s face on it (£28), a face towel at £14 and a table flag at £10.60.
Those Kawaski Frontale fans with money to burn can also pick up a special strip, which comes in at a meaty £140.
The trio’s move across to Scotland to join Kyogo Furuhashi at Celtic has made waves in Japan, with interest in how they are going to perform extremely high.
