Ljungberg joins Celtic after passing medical

Celtic has signed Freddie Ljungberg after the former Sweden midfielder passed a medical examination.
The 33-year-old Ljungberg has been without a club since leaving the Chicago Fire at the end of the 2010 Major League Soccer season.
Celtic announced the signing on its website Thursday and said Ljungberg "could be in contention" to make his debut in the Old Firm derby against Rangers on Sunday.
The club did not disclose details of the contract.
Ljungberg spent nine years at Arsenal before moving to West Ham in 2007. But he left the Hammers just one year into a four-year contract and took a brief break before joining the Seattle Sounders.
