Celtic striker Tony Watt has signed a new four-year contract with the Scottish champions.

The 18-year-old has been in impressive form for his hometown Glasgow club, including the decisive goal in Celtic's stunning 2-1 UEFA Champions League win over European giants Barcelona. He is now set to stay at Parkhead until 2016.

Watt's first-team debut in April saw him score two goals within six minutes of coming on during the 3-0 win over Motherwell.

"I'm delighted to have signed this new contract," Watt told the club's website. "I'm a Celtic fan and this is where I want to play my football. The last couple of weeks have been incredible, and to sign the contract just a week after scoring against Barcelona is brilliant.

"I know I've still got a lot of hard work ahead of me in my career, but it's great to know that I'll be here as part of this exciting young team the manager's building at Celtic."

Watt has scored eight goals in 17 appearances for Celtic, ten of which came from the bench, since signing from Airdrie United last year.
