Celtic fans aren't singing the blues over reports about Emilio Izaguirre.

The 33-year-old is set to leave Parkhead for a second time after rejecting a contract extension by the club, according to Herald Scotland.

Former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers re-signed the Honduras international on a one-year deal last summer as cover for Kieran Tierney.

It would appear that somebody in power at Paradise wanted to keep Izaguirre beyond this summer, but the left-back has seemingly made his mind up and decided to leave Glasgow.

 

Here's how Celtic supporters reacted: 

Izaguirre, who started 16 games in all competitions for the Bhoys last term, hasn't kicked a ball for Celtic since April.

He barely featured when Neil Lennon took over from Rodgers, making only three appearances under the club's former midfielder.

He originally spent seven years at Paradise, before leaving for Al-Fayha in 2017.
