Former Celtic favourite Emilio Izaguirre looks set for a surprise return to Celtic Park this summer after confirming to a Central American radio station he is in discussions with the club.

Scottish media has already reported this morning about a potential move for the Honduran international, but the player himself is on the record speaking about a potential move.

As quoted by Radio America, the former Hoops man told a Costa Rican station: “I am arranging with Celtic to return.¬†I do not plan to stay in Central America right now.”

Izaguirre had previously been linked with a move to Alajuelense who play in the Costa Rican top-flight, report the outlet, also adding that the player has options in Turkey and Croatia should a move to Celtic not work out.

The 32-year-old left Celtic last summer after seeing his first-team football reduced more and more after the emergence of Kieran Tierney but there’s no doubt he would be solid back-up again should he return.

He’s made over 250 appearances for the club, has a special relationship with fans and is more than capable of providing much-needed cover in the left-back position, something we currently lack.

There has been little chatter about the club making a move for any other left-backs and at this point it appears Izaguirre would be the best option, especially since he wouldn’t require a transfer fee.

Do you think Celtic should re-sign Emilio Izaguirre? Have your say in our poll below…

  • Last minute panic buying as per usual. No Izaguirre, No Denayer No Loans. Very poor recruitment policy and Rogers will not stand for it.. Double Treble winners and Celtic have not freshened up the team.
    Personally cannot attend matches living in England. Buy club kits etc and support them in other ways too but I want a return too. The scouting system must be one of the worst in the SPFL
