Dylan McGeouch claims Rangers were keen to keep him at Ibrox this summer, but the lure of his boyhood heroes Celtic proved too strong.
The 18-year-old was on the books at Parkhead as a trainee, but crossed the Glasgow divide in 2008.
He has, however, always been a Celtic fan and has been lured back by Bhoys boss Neil Lennon.
Having forced his way into the fold last week, he announced his return with a wonderful solo effort in a 5-0 victory over St Mirren.
McGeouch is hoping there will be many more highs to come, but he has also taken the time to shed some light on his summer switch - with the youngster keen to point out that he did not snub Rangers and their former boss Walter Smith.
He said: "I was in a few meetings with Rangers before I came here and there were a lot of things said.
"It is hard to say what without going into details but they wanted to keep me.
"It wasn't saying no to him (Smith), we didn't really speak about Celtic, it was more about what he could do with me with Rangers.
"I didn't play them (Celtic and Rangers) off each other, it was really about what Rangers could do for me and as a Celtic fan I just thought Celtic was the place for me.
"I wouldn't move to a club for the financial side, you would need to be happy and obviously Celtic was the team I grew up watching so I thought I would be happy here, which I am.
"Once I made my decision, it was the right one for me and to come on in my home debut and score obviously helps me and helps me settle into the team as well."
