Celtic defender Mikael Lustig’s time at Parkhead appears to up, with The Daily Record reporting that Belgian side KAA Gent will be his next destination.
The Hoops have opted against offering the Swede an extension, and will attempt to find a long-term replacement for the 32-year-old this summer.
Lustig brings to an end a seven-and-a-half-year stint at the club, in which he won 16 major honours.
He is thought of fondly by Celtic supporters, most of whom are happy to see the defender being moved on.
One man who summed up the general opinion of Lustig was former Hoops striker Chris Sutton, who wrote on Twitter: “Great servant for Celtic.”

With 276 appearances to his name, Lustig has certainly been just that.
Lustig has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell with Celtic but the time is right for him to embark on a new adventure.
Neil Lennon has seemingly performed a U-turn having initially stated he wanted him to stay.
Aged 32, his best years are definitely behind him and the search will now begin for a long-term replacement.
Whoever comes in, Lennon will hope to see similar levels of commitment and quality to that of a prime Lustig.
