Celtic cult hero Emilio Izaguirre has given some insight into his Celtic Park departure.

Speaking to Diario Deportivo Diez in his home country, Emilio spoke candidly about leaving Celtic and how it was somewhat out of his control.

“They’re very difficult things to talk about. There will be a day when I will talk about my departure from Celtic. I don’t want to because it was due to personal problems that I had with agents in England, and that’s why I left.

“It was hard for me to leave. Brendan Rodgers got angry with me because he counted on me, and I found myself with this guilt of leaving, but I left the door open there, and you don’t know what will happen tomorrow. We had a hard time with my wife and children because of personal things that happened to us.”

Emilio was a fantastic servant for Celtic and created an emotional bond with the Celtic support. Nobody wanted him to leave last summer, but it was believed at the time he wanted first team football. Kieran Tierney’s emergence left the Honduran with little game time. However, he would have come in very handy this season and Kieran has had to play more games than a young player probably should as a result.



  1. Personal things that happened to him and his family! I wonder what he could be referring to? We should be able to guess. Look at what scum have tried with Scott Sinclair and you have all the clues you require.

  2. Emelio Should Have Never Left Paradise The Supporters Loved Him And He Love Them, He Never Let Us Down Even Before His Leg Break And After His Leg Break, Yes He Was Hurting It Was Etched On His Face For All To See, When Our Very Own Young Kieran Tierney Who We All Know What A Tremendous Player He Is For A Young Player And I Know That Emelio Would Have Given Young Kieran His Blessing & Wished Him All The Best In The Green & White Hoops For The Future, Emilio Someone Once Said Football Is A Funny Old Game And Maybe Just Maybe We Shall See You Back Again At Paradise. Also So Sorry To Hear That His Wife & Children Had To Put Up With Which Can Only Be Prescribed As Verbal And Sectarian Abuse etc etc. Would Like To Wish Emilio, His Wife And Children All The Best For The Future, God Bless Them All.
