COMMENT

A very interesting transfer story has developed recently, concerning former Celtic left-back Emilio Izaguirre.

The 32-year-old has revealed, as reported by the Scottish Sun, that he left Saudi Arabian side Al-Fayha and that he knocked back the chance to move to Hibernian because of issues with agents.

The Honduran international goes on to claim that he wants to play in the United States, but the Hoops should move to try and persuade him to return to Scotland, even just for one season.

The Hoops still haven’t got a recognised back-up left-back to replace Kieran Tierney, which has been the situation at the club since Izaguirre left the club.

Calvin Miller has played on the rather occasions when Tierney has been rested, but he is not a natural left-back and there are doubts about his future at the club.

Izaguirre might not want to return to Scotland, but he would be a very useful player for Brendan Rodgers to have in his squad.

He is still relatively young at 32-years-old, and would temporarily address a problem area which has been glaring in the Hoops side for over a year.

You would have to imagine that after his comments the chances of Izaguirre returning to Scotland are slim, but if there is any chance at all of getting the player to return to Glasgow the Hoops need to explore all avenues.
