On 23 November 2011, Celtic announced that they had signed Lustig on a pre-contract. He officially joined the club on 1 January 2012. He made his debut for Celtic on 3 March, in a 1–1 draw with Aberdeen. He scored his first goal for the Hoops in a 2–2 home draw against Hibernian on 1 September 2012. He was also initially credited with Celtic’s second goal that day, although it was later given as an own goal. On 17 July 2013, Lustig opened the scoring in Celtic’s 3–0 away victory in the second round of qualifying against Cliftonville in the Champions League.
