According to Sky Sports  Emilio Izaguirre was taken to hospital following riots before a football match in Honduras. The reports say that three people were killed and at least seven seriously wounded following riots just outside Tegucigalpa’s National Stadium.

The bus Izzy was travelling on was attacked just before a derby game between Olimpia and Motagua.

The ex-Celts teammates Roberto Moreira and Jonathan Rougier were also taken to a nearby hospital after facial wounds.

The Honduras National Football League suspended the game after the attacks. Izaguirre has bizarrely linked back with a move to Celtic for a third time only a few weeks ago but the reports were later rubbished.

The left-back is a huge fan favourite at Celtic Park after he gave seven years service to the club and bought into the Celtic way. All Celtic fans will be hoping that the player’s injuries are not too serious and that he can make a speedy recovery.
