Celtic fringe man Emilio Izaguirre could get some minutes on international duty

Celtic defender Emilio Izaguirre has not enjoyed the best return to Parkhead since he re-signed for the club in the summer, but could get some valuable minutes away on internatonal duty over the next two weeks.

The 32-year-old returned to the Scottish champions for a second stint in the summer, with seven years already under the belt with them from his first spell.

He has been signed to provide back-up for Kieran Tierney at left-back and that has seen him make just three appearances across all competitions so far this campaign.

But the full-back has linked up with his nation Honduras during the international break for fixtures against United Arab Emirates and Chile.

Izaguirre is somewhat of a forgotten man at the club right now, but it could only take one injury to ever-present Tierney to see him thrown straight into the starting XI.

The Honduras international does have a wealth of experience under his belt and should provide suitable cover at Celtic if required.

But he’s begun to lose that yard of pace and the left-back would benefit massively from some action for his nation during the next fortnight.
