sporting director ralf rangnick:
- "In Marvin, a very good and experienced player leaves us, who played an essential role in our development over the last few years with the promotion to the Bundesliga, as well as the direct and club's first qualification for the Champions League.
I'm very happy for him, not just because of the work we've done together over the last few years, but because he has found a club full of tradition in Celtic, where he will again have good chances of playing for titles and in the Champions League next season. I wish him the very best and a lot of success in his new challenge."
- "Above all, I'd like to thank the fans for the support, which not only I, but the whole team have always felt. And also for the togetherness and unity that has developed continuously over the last few years. I hope that remains a great strength of RB Leipzig. And as the saying goes: you always meet twice in life."
