EMILIO IZAGUIRRE required stitches after a remarkable training ground bust-up with Celtic team-mate Nadir Ciftci at Lennoxtown this morning.
Ciftci, who missed the first six league games of the season while serving a ban picked up at the end of the last campaign before his move from Dundee United to the Hoops, reacted and Izaguirre sustained an injury to his ear, which required stitches.
Celtic boss Ronny Deila confirmed the altercation, but added his left-back would be fit if required for tomorrow night’s League Cup quarter-final against Hearts at Tynecastle.
“I always say to my players I want 100 per cent. They are very good at that.
“We have a fantastic atmosphere in the training pitch. It’s been very good lately.
“Sometimes it goes a little too hot and today there was an incident, but I have talked with both players and everybody is ready for tomorrow.”
Deila confirmed it was Ciftci who reacted and added: “I wasn’t there. We sorted it inside.
