Could Emilio Izaguirre Really Be About to Stay at Celtic After All?

Could Emilio Izaguirre Really Be About to Stay at Celtic After All?

It looks as though Celtic’s Emilio Izaguirre could be staying at the club this summer – despite several emotional goodbyes towards the end of the season.

The Honduran left-back, now 30, has been a hero in the eyes of the Hoops support ever since arriving in Glasgow in 2010, but has lost his place of late.

Ever since the emergence of the brilliant Kieran Tierney, Izaguirre has found himself kicking his heels on the subs bench, and was thought to be seeking more playing time this summer.

At the end of the title-clinching match against Aberdeen, and the last match of the season against Motherwell, Izaguirre was seen saying his goodbyes to supporters from the Parkhead pitch, and was even reduced to tears at one point.

But following the appointment of new manager Brendan Rodgers, it appears the defender may have had a change of heart.

According to The Sun, Izaguirre has told Rodgers he wants to stay and fight for his place, with one more year left to run on his contract.

So, could he really be about to stay? And would Celtic fans welcome it?
