Celtic defender Cristian Gamboa has been offered a contract in his homeland, as his time in Glasgow comes to an end, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

The 29-year-old’s current deal at the Hoops expires at the end of the season and there’s little chance of him staying beyond this term having been pushed more and more to the fringes of the first-team.

The Sun reckon he has now been offered a deal by Deportiva Alajuelense, who are 29-time champions in Costa Rica.

Gamboa was signed by former manager Brendan Rodgers back in 2016, seen as a player who could challenge Mikael Lustig for a first-team place at right-back.

He failed to do that consistently though and was mostly used as back-up to the Swedish international, rarely impressing supporters when he did get an opportunity.

The 73-cap international has managed to make just 31 appearances in his time at Celtic Park, failing to play once in 2019 so far and making just one league start this season.

Clearly his time is up and we wish him well.

Supporters will be eager to see the club sign a right-back this summer, with many feeling like Lustig is not of the required standard anymore either.
