Celtic defender Emilio Izaguirre is set to quit the club at the end of the season, according to a report.
The Glasgow Evening Times report that the Honduras international, 30, is heading for the Parkhead exit door as he prepares to end his seven-year association with the club.
It is said that Izaguirre is out of contract in the summer and is expected to leave after losing his regular starting place to rising star Kieran Tierney.
Izaguirre, who is an 88-times international, has been a mainstay of the Celtic team since joining in 2010, accumulating 250 appearances in all competitions to become one of the longest-serving players.
He has made an important contribution under Brendan Rodgers this season with 16 appearances, including a trio of Champions League outings while Tierney was sidelined with an ankle injury.
But it is clear that Izaguirre is now regarded as the deputy to first-choice Tierney.
The experienced defender has not started a Scottish Premiership match since 31 December and has not been in the matchday quad at all for the last three matches.
Meanwhile, Celtic are closing in on the domestic treble as they look to add the Scottish Premiership and Scottish Cup trophies to the Scottish League Cup they have already won.
Rodgers’ team are on course to clinch their sixth consecutive title immediately after the international break before a mouthwatering Old Firm Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park on 23 April.
