Mexico International Isaac Brizuela Says He Won’t Give Up Hope of Signing for Celtic

Mexico winger Isaac Brizuela says he won’t lose hope of one day signing for Celtic – after revealing he missed out on an opportunity to join the Hoops several years ago.

Now 29, Brizuela is currently playing for C.D. Guadalajara in his homeland but could’ve been pulling on Celtic’s famous green and white jersey after an approach from the Scottish champions back in 2014.

In the end, Celtic’s hierarchy refused to meet the £5 million asking price for the 14-time capped midfielder and he ended up joining Liga MX side Chivas, but it seems the player still harbours hope of a move to Glasgow.

Speaking to Mexican news outlet Medio Tiempo, Brizuela was asked about his failed move to Parkhead, and he said: “I heard about the rumours but I didn’t want to think about them too much. I didn’t want to distract myself.

“In the end, I don’t know if they spoke to a director.

“When I was with Toluca, they made an approach but the club did not let me go because Celtic did not want to pay what Toluca asked.

“Being here in Chivas I’m not sure if a scout came over or has come over recently but I won’t lose hope.

“I know I am getting older but I won’t give up hope that such a moment will come.”

Celtic seem pretty well-stocked in the wingers department, following the summer signings of Mohamed Elyounoussi, Marian Shved and Jonathan Afolabi, as well as the emergence of Mikey Johnston and Karamoko Dembele.

But do you think there’s still a chance Brizuela could eventually land his dream move?
