Celtic Facing Left-Back Crisis After Izaguirre Injury

Celtic Facing Left-Back Crisis After Izaguirre Injury

Celtic look like they are about to experience something of a crisis at left-back after Emilio Izaguirre was carried off injured against Hibs.

The Honduran has been filling-in as Brendan Rodgers’ second choice on the left of his defence as Kieran Tierney continues his recovery from an ongoing problem with his hip.

But the 32-year-old looked in a lot of pain as he was stretchered off after a sore-looking tackle from Hibees debutant Darnell Johnson late in the Hoops’ 2-0 victory – with some fans on social media speculating that Izaguirre looks likely to be ruled out for some time.

Jonny Hayes replaced Izaguirre for the final eight minutes of Wednesday night’s contest, but the Irishman has been pretty unfancied by Rodgers since moving to Celtic Park, whilst left-footed Callum McGregor is needed as the midfield’s chief creative option.

At the moment, it looks like Celtic’s ever growing injury list could soon cost them in the Premiership run-in – but who would you play at left-back if Izaguirre is indeed out for an extended period of time?
