Gershon has been out of favor with his Belgian club Standard Liege and has made just one appearance this season, prompting the 24-year-old to accept the chance to talk to Celtic about a move to Parkhead.


On his arrival at Glasgow Airport, Gershon told STV: "I am very happy to be here. I am very excited to have the opportunity to play for Celtic."


Gershon would link up with fellow Israeli Beram Kayal at Celtic and the defender added: "He is a good friend of mine but everything was very quick so I didn't find the time to speak to him. But in the past he has told me only good things about Celtic."


If Gershon signs, he could be added to the club's Champions League squad for their last-16 tie against Juventus.
