EMILIO IZAGUIRRE is pondering his future after leaving Celtic for the second time.

The 33-year-old international left-back quit the Hoops at the end of his contract last month and has returned to training with his former club in Honduras.

Izaguirre made 19 appearances in the historic treble treble campaign and claimed 13 medals at Parkhead after originally joining from Motagua nine years ago.

He returned last August after an ill-fated spell in Saudi Arabia with Al-Fayha. He is now back in pre-season preparations with his former club and is swithering on deciding whether to remain in his homeland or join a new club abroad.

Izzy, as reported in the Scottish Sun, said: “It’s great to wear the Motagua shirt again after all these years and it’s keeping me fit while I decide my footballing future.

“I want to be closer to my family without long flights when I play for my country and certainly if I decide to stay in Honduras there is only one club for me.

“I’ve made no secret of the fact my priority is to sign for a team in the MLS, but I might have to wait until November for that.

“I also have offers from teams in Mexico and Turkey and my agent is handling that.

“But for now the main thing is for me to get fit again with Motagua.”
