Having been a Celtic player since 2010, long-serving Bhoys defender Emilio Izaguirre hopes that he can sign a new deal with the Scottish giants, report HITC.

Currently deputising for the injured Kieran Tierney, the Honduras international has been depended upon by multiple Celtic managers and the 30-year-old is certain where his future lies.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun recently, Izaguirre claimed: “The issue of a new contract is not down to me — my agent is negotiating with Celtic.

“Celtic have treated me so well and have always helped me. I have been there for seven seasons now and my family have always been very impressed with the support Celtic have given me.”

Having made just over 160 Scottish Premiership appearances for the Parkhead outfit, many assumed that Izaguirre wouldn’t be retained by Brendan Rodgers in the summer.

As events have turned out, it’s been vital that Izaguirre remained in Glasgow with 19-year-old Tierney set to be out of action until January according to recent reports.

Also still in the hunt for Champions League qualification, albeit a slim chance with Barcelona to face at home, Izaguirre will be hoping to channel his best form as he continues to receive starting opportunities.
