Mikael Lustig Admits Celtic Future Remains Unclear Despite Talks with Lennon

Mikael Lustig Admits Celtic Future Remains Unclear Despite Talks with Lennon

Celtic defender Mikael Lustig has admitted his future in Glasgow remains up in the air, despite holding talks with interim manager Neil Lennon.

The Sweden international has been a mainstay in the Hoops starting XI more or less since arriving in Scotland back in 2012, but the 32-year-old has seen his spot go to loanee Jeremy Toljan in recent months.

Lustig is out of contract in the summer, and with his 33rd birthday looming on the horizon later this year, the right-back is honest enough to admit he’s still unclear on whether or not he’ll be in the Scottish Premiership next season.

Speaking to the Celtic View, via the Sun, Lustig explained: “Neil and I talked together shortly after he returned.

“We discussed a little bit about my situation and about what might happen next year.

“We’re both in a situation where we don’t know what the future holds come the summer.

“I try not to think too much about the future but it’s always in your head, especially when you have a family.

“You naturally want to know what the future holds but in football that’s not always the case and I’m used to that.

“I’ve been here for a long time and I’ve loved every second of my time here.”

Do you think Celtic’s hierarchy should hand Lustig a new contract this summer? And do you think the veteran is still good enough to hold down a regular spot in the club’s starting XI?
