Club career

In January 2006, after a stellar 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Peru, where he scored twice for eventual finalists Brazil, both of the goals coming in the knockout stages, Celsinho was bought by Russian club FC Lokomotiv Moscow from Associação Portuguesa de Desportos, where he failed to settle overall due to climate, the overall roughness of football and a bad personal relationship with the team's coach.

Celsinho joined Sporting Clube de Portugal in the 2007 summer, being loaned with the option for a permanent deal. At the Lisbon side, however, he also did not manage to receive significant playing time. His Primeira Liga debut came on 29 September as he featured six minutes in a 0–0 away draw against S.L. Benfica, and his output for the campaign consisted of ten official matches (including nine minutes in a 1–2 loss at A.S. Roma for the UEFA Champions League), none complete.

After being signed permanently, Celsinho moved on loan to fellow league club C.F. Estrela da Amadora to gain more first-team experience. In the season opener, at home against Académica de Coimbra, he started and scored the game's only goal, but fell out of favour shortly after, his last appearance being in late February 2009 (in November of the previous year he was subjected to disciplinary proceedings by both Sporting and Estrela, after being caught in bars in Montijo and Lisbon); Estrela was also relegated due to financial irregularities, after having finished in mid-table.

Celsinho spent one entire year at Sporting without making one single appearance, also failing medicals at several Brazilian teams in view of a transfer. In January 2010 he returned to Portuguesa on loan, being again rarely played.

In early June 2011, Celsinho was loaned again, now to FCM Târgu Mureş in Romania.
