Cillian Sheridan says he wants to come back to Scotland and ‘re-establish’ himself after the Celtic academy graduate signed with Dundee.

The Irish striker has been abroad since leaving Kilmarnock in 2013, having started his career with Celtic. Sheridan has moved all over the world since 2018, moving from Poland to New Zealand, then to Israel before returning Poland. Now penning a two-year deal with Dundee, Sheridan didn’t fancy going on his travels again.

He said (Courier): “It’s good to be back for some normality. Dundee gave me the chance to come in and train with the lads. I was looking to come back and the opportunity came up at Dundee. Everything fitted into place for me. The last two years or so I was just sort of bouncing around and not really settling anywhere.

“I didn’t fancy doing that again so I was pleased to get the chance to come back and re-establish myself. Sheridan is certainly used to adapting.  When you go abroad once, it opens doors to other places.  Your name gets about and you meet more people in that world and more offers and opportunities come up.

“Because I did Bulgaria so young (with CSKA Sofia in 2010) it gave me the foundation to know how to adapt to new places. It was never something I set out to do. It’s just the way things worked out.”
