Celtic re-sign popular left-back after short spell in Saudi Arabia
Emilio Izaguirre returns to Scotland having won six league titles in seven years during his previous spell with Celtic.

LEFT-BACK EMILIO Izaguirre has returned to Scottish Premiership champions Celtic on a one-year deal.

The Honduras international won six titles in seven years in Glasgow — making 252 appearances for the Hoops — before leaving the club for Al-Fayha in 2017.

However, Izaguirre cut short his time in Saudi Arabia and, following reported interest from Hibernian, has re-joined Celtic, where he was a hugely popular figure for much of his first spell.

“I’m happy to be back home,” he said. “I was at Celtic for seven years and in my heart I only have love for Celtic, and I’m happy to be back home.

“It’s a huge blessing for me to sign a contract for Celtic, and I want to say thanks to Celtic – the gaffer, Peter (Lawwell) and all the staff for giving me the opportunity.”
