Celtic fans have welcomed back Emilio Izaguirre.
The Honduran signed a one year contract almost a year after leaving the club for Saudi Arabia.
When his family failed to settle it looked like Izaguirre may return to his native Honduras but a call from Celtic proved too good to resist.
Ssshappening Emilio ????

Why are people complaining? We’re getting him for free basically and it’s just a back up for Tierney.

It’s a joke , BR has stated that he wants to take us to the next level hence the reason he wants the Backing from the Board he’s not settling for group stages etc he is wanting to push the boat out

Strange signing mate, reeks of desperation from the board. Whats happened to our scouting network, seems we only travel as far as Manchester to view players these days or call on old friends/players to help us get some cover in.

Izzy had his head turned by his agent telling him he needed to move on for regular football around world cup time. Yet again, it’s a free transfer with a known quantity. Let’s just be happy he’s back.

Providing back-up to Kieran Tierney shouldn’t prove too demanding as the 32-year-old looks to add the seventh SPL/SPFL medal to his collection.
Neil Lennon paid £600,000 to Motagua to sign Izaguirre after the 2010 World Cup in South Africa with that fee turning out to be a bargain.
In his first season in Scotland the attacking left-back swept the board with Player of the Year awards but in August 2011 he broke his ankle against Aberdeen at Pittodrie.
Although he never regained his initial form he played a key role in title wins under Neil Lennon and Ronny Deila.
