Champions League football was a decisive factor behind Cardiff City defender Glenn Loovens' decision to choose Celtic over Rangers.
The 24-year-old Dutchman is expected to seal a move to Parkhead over the weekend, having previously looked set to head to Ibrox.
He told the Scottish Daily Express: "I had the choice of Rangers and Celtic and it was a hard decision to make.
"But the chance to play in the Champions League is what swung it for me. It's a stage every player wants to grace.
"I was flattered by Rangers' interest, but the chance to play in Europe was just too good to turn down.
"I'm delighted to be joining a club like Celtic. They are a big club and it will be a dream to play for them."
