Read all the news about Derk Boerrigter. Derk Boerrigter was born in Oldenzaal on 16 October 1986 (age 31). Follow @BoerrigterDerk on Twitter.

Derk Boerrigter is a Dutch footballer who plays as a winger. He began his professional career with Ajax, but didn’t make any first team appearances and was loaned to Haarlem. He then played for FC Zwolle and RKC Waalwijk before rejoining Ajax.

On 30 July 2013, Boerrigter signed a four-year deal with Celtic. A transfer fee between the two parties of Ajax and Celtic was agreed upon, since Boerrigter still had two more seasons left on his contract with Ajax. The fee was reported to be around €3.5 million (roughly £3 million) by his agent Søren Lerby. Upon his arrival in Glasgow he was given the number 11 shirt. Boerrigter made his Celtic debut against Ross County on 3 August 2013, but was taken off injured. Celtic went on to win the match 2–1. He scored his first goal for Celtic on 23 November 2013, netting Celtic’s second goal in injury time in a 3–1 win over Aberdeen. However, injuries curtailed Boerrigter’s first team involvement during his first few months at Celtic.
