The Honduran blazed over the bar when on a hat-trick.
Celtic ran out comfortable winners in the Scottish Premiership today – romping to a 6-0 triumph over Dundee with a surprise hero at the forefront of the action.
Honduran left-back Emilio Izaguirre has had his fair share of critics this season. The defender then found himself sent off against Ajax in the Europa League this week with the score 2-1 to Celtic. They went on to draw the tie 2-2 – with Izaguirre largely to blame.
With that clearly in the back of his mind he went out onto the pitch this weekend like a man on a mission and scored, twice!
The goals were his first for the club since January and he might have even had a hat-trick. Celtic were awarded a penalty in the game and in the feeling of good spirit the ball was passed to Izaguirre to try and bag a hat-trick.
However, his woeful effort did not threaten the back of the net, or the bar, as it hurtled into space.
His manager Ronny Deila was less than sympathetic in his post-match presser, stating:
RD on Emilio's penalty: 'I’ve not seen many worse penalties, but there was so much pressure on him & he had to wait a while to take it.'— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) September 20, 2015
RD: He can come forward for crosses but I think he’ll have to stay back in the future if we get another penalty.— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) September 20, 2015
Hopefully however Izaguirre will be buoyed by this performance after a difficult week and can continue to produce his best for the club.
