Celtic full-back Mark Wilson

Bristol City have signed former Celtic defender Mark Wilson, subject to international clearance.

The 28-year-old, who was a free agent after being released from the SPL side in the summer, has agreed a short-term contract until 13 January.

He was involved in the Championship club's pre-season campaign and was in the stands for City's League Cup defeat by Gillingham on Tuesday.

It will be Wilson's first foray in the English game.

He started his career at Dundee United, where he spent six seasons and made 137 appearances, before joining Celtic in 2006.

Injury restricted Wilson to only 11 games last term and he was let go by manager Neil Lennon in May.
