Celtic Petrov was signed in the summer of 1999 by John Barnes for a fee of £2. 8 million.  The teenager featured prominently in a season where he won the League Cup with Celtic,  his second major honour and the first of many with Celtic. Despite the happy end to the season Petrov had a very hard time starting with the club. He was homesick and lonely at the start, and could not speak English. This was made worse by the manager playing him out of position at right back.
This goal was marked as a possible candidate for "goal of the season". It was also confirmed to be the furthest out recorded goal by an Aston Villa player since the club was formed.  The 2008–09 season saw Petrov's form improved considerably as he became a first team regular, starting Villa's six Premier League games in a row.
On 30 August 2006, Petrov completed his move to Villa Park on a four-year deal worth £6. 5 million, becoming O'Neill's first signing for Villa.  His debut was against West Ham United on 10 September. The game finished 1–1. In 2007, Petrov changed his shirt number from 11 to 19. Petrov scored his first Villa goal in a 2–2 draw against Sheffield United on 11 December 2006, but suffered patchy form throughout his first two seasons at the club. He scored a volley from near the halfway line against already relegated Derby County on 12 April 2008. This was his first goal of the season and Villa won 6–0.
