Celtic's new defender Kelvin Wilson has expressed his relief at finally joining the SPL giants from Nottingham Forest.
The 25-year-old agreed a pre-contract with the Bhoys in January and Forest denied him the chance to leave the City Ground early.
Wilson was sidelined by Forest manager Billy Davies in the wake of his Celtic announcement, although the stopper has rejected talk of having a problem with the Scot.
Wilson is delighted he has now completed his Parkhead switch, and he is looking forward to making his debut and playing alongside his new team-mates.
"It has been hard because your heart is somewhere else," explained Wilson.
"Forest understood that. January was probably the right time to come but I didn't come and it was hard for Forest and for me.
"I had four great years there, I enjoyed it and got on with everyone and I left on good terms.
"I always got on with him (Davies). He signed me at Preston and then he got the job at Forest, so I always got on with him.
"He made it clear that if players wanted to move on they could move on but I don't know what went on between the two clubs, I'm just a player.
"But I'm delighted that it's all sorted and I am here now and I'm looking forward to it, I am delighted. I am obviously not match fit but that won't take long."
