Donati Signs

The club can confirm the signing this morning of 35 year old Italian midfielder Massimo Donati after international clearance came through from the Italian Federation, and also from his last club Bari.

The highly experienced player started off as a youth at Atalanta before joining AC Milan (17 appearances), then had loan spells with Parma, Torino, Sampdoria, Messina and Atalanta. He came to Scotland and joined Celtic in 2007. After nearly two seasons in Glasgow where he made 31 appearances and scored 3 times – he played in Celtic’s 2-1 victory at NDP on 16th Nov 2008 – he moved on to Bari, then Palermo, Hellas Verona and returned to Bari where he has been for the last two seasons.

In addition he has been capped 26 times by Italy at u21 level, scoring once.

Player / Manager Martin Canning said, “Massimo knows Scotland and had expressed a desire to come back here. He came to our attention and we took him to Spain with us for our training camp a fortnight ago. He adds vital experience to our squad and I’m delighted to have him on board.”
