Jos Hooiveld (Dutch pronunciation: [jɔs ˈhoːifɛlt]; born 22 April 1983, Zeijen) is a Dutch footballer who plays for Celtic in the Scottish Premier League.


Club career



Hooiveld started his professional career for SC Heerenveen in 2003, when he came on as a substitute for Petter Hansson. In the next season he made twelve appearances in the League mostly as a left full-back, starting in five of those matches which included wins over Ajax and PSV Eindhoven. He couldn't force his way to the first team the following season and was loaned to second tier's FC Zwolle in January 2005 for a 18 months. He left the club in the summer of 2006 joining Austrian club Kapfenberger SV.


He made his FC Zwolle debut in February 2005 in a 0-0 draw, playing as a left full-back where he played most of his matches for the club with brief moves to midfield and central defence. In total he made forty-four League appearances during his loan spell scoring three goals.


His football career almost ended due to problems with the club and management, but his agent found a better place for him when he signed a two year contract with Finnish Veikkausliiga club FC Inter Turku after only eight months at the club making just fourteen appearances.

Inter Turku

He joined Inter Turku in April 2007 and in his first season was voted as the MVP in the Finnish League Cup and after the season he was chosen as the best player of the season by a Finnish magazine Iltalehti and was also named Veikkausliiga Defender of the season. In the beginning of the 2008 season he won the League Cup, when FC Inter beat their local rival TPS in the final. He went on to win the League with Inter Turku that season which was the first time the club had won the League and was again named Veikkausliiga Defender of the season for the second time in only two years in Finland - impressively Turku kept sixteen clean-sheets in the League in twenty-six matches in which Hooiveld played. After two succesful years in Finland for FC Inter Turku he signed for Swedish club AIK Solna in January 2009 after playing fifty-two League matches for Inter scoring 4 goals.

AIK Solna

Hooiveld made his debut for AIK on 5 April 2009 in a 1-0 win of Halmstads BK in the League. He won the League in season 2009 with AIK the first time the club had won it in ten years which added to the Swedish Cup they had won weeks before, making it the first time in their history AIK had done the Double.

Hooiveld made a total of thirty-one appearances for the club during his one season. AIK manager Mikael Stahre wished Hooiveld well on his move commenting "Jos has, during this year, helped and contributed to the 'winning-mentality' that characterizes AIK. Idols come and go, AIK stay. We wish him well in his future career."


On 11 January 2010, Celtic announced that Hooiveld had signed a three and a half year deal with the club,[1] with the fee believed to be around £1,400,000.[2][3]

Jos was given the number 16 shirt which was vacated by Willo Flood after his transfer to Middlesbrough .
