Scottish Champions Celtic Complete The Signing Of Emilio Izaguirre


Celtic have announced the signing of defender Emilio Izaguirre, who has rejoined the Hoops.

The 32-year-old left the Scottish champions last year to complete a move to Saudi Arabia, where he joined up with Al-Fayha.

But he recently agreed to terminate his contract with the Saudi club and as a result was available to sign as a free agent.

Celtic have wasted little time in re-signing Izaguirre and the veteran left-back will provide cover for Kieran Tierney at Celtic Park.

The Honduras international has signed a contract running for 12 months with the Scottish champions, though his move remains subject to international clearance.

Emilio made 252 appearances for Celtic over the course of his first spell at the club.

He enjoyed big success in Scotland and won six league titles.

Izaguirre will now add to manager Brendan Rodgers’ options, providing extra depth to the Northern Irishman’s defensive resources at Celtic Park.
