The 23-year-old will not officially return to Celtic until late 2020.

Andrew Gutman #96 of FC Cincinnati kicks the ball during the game against the Columbus Crew SC at Nippert Stadium on August 25, 2019 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The loaned-out Celtic left-back Andrew Gutman is back in Glasgow, according to his Instagram story.

Gutman will not officially return to Celtic until this time next year, when his loan deal with FC Cincinnati is due to expire.


Speaking last month, the American told his temporary employers' official website of his intention to rejoin Celtic for training before returning home to his family in December.


And he posted the following update earlier on Monday:

Gutman is one of two United States-based full-backs to be signed by Celtic at the start of this year, alongside Manny Perez.

Perez also spent the 2019 calendar year back in his homeland, with North Carolina FA.

But unlike that of Gutman, the right-back's loan deal expires this month.

Celtic currently employ Hatem Abd Elhamed, Jeremie Frimpong and Moritz Bauer in Perez's position.

The two American players must be granted a work permit before they can play in Scotland.
