    Good luck to him, been a fantastic servant to the club..

    On a another note, leaves us severely lacking in defensive options. Gamboa and Boyata injured, Izzy away. Would expect a signing soon..

    Just had a look on the Celtic first team page there the now by * we are down to bare bones at the back and only 2 strikers still grates me, there must be someone out there we could bring in upfront, what if Griffiths cant shake niggles and moussa does a hammy, go into 3rd round and a playoff with Jack Atchison or sinclair losing his running from wide....

    Should just do Mowbray and stick Broony there.

    Selling Izzy and re-signing Kolo Toure in footballing terms makes little sense. I could understand it if you're bringing in Kolo as a coach, but he seems to think he's got another season in him. Problem is his legs have gone. Izzy's on the other hand most certainly have not. So a strange one, but a decent move into a big lifestyle change, think he'll enjoy it out there.

    Sad to see him go. Been a great servant for the club and needs to be replaced. Best option may well be signing a LB who can also play CB or vice versa (basically a better version of Charlie Mulgrew).

    Good luck Emilio, thanks for the memories

    Rather he stayed!
    Can only assume Brendan has other options in mind - another youth perhaps due to step it up?


    Absolute superb servant to the club, a true gent and a great wee player to boost. Player of the year in his first season, and never let us down when called upon in the last 18 months.
    Wish you and the family all the best Emilio, never be a stranger, never walk alone. Hail Hail!

    Celtic Icon for me!

    Actually may be the saddest Celtic news this transfer window is seeing Izzy go.

    I was worried last season, but actually felt like he was here for another year or two as well. Deserves to play more than we can offer - and that isn't down to his lack of ability which is there in abundance!

    Getting over a million for him is a steal.

    Think he's became a complete liability the last few seasons and got away with it because we didn't have another left back.

    Would rather Hayes or McGregor at left back ahead of him these days.

    Why not. Barnes, in his infinite wisdom, played Lubo there. :87:

    As for Izzy, will wait until it is official before saying my farewells. Respect him too much to pre-emt anything.

    Don't talk pish if it wasn't for the former totally fkn up against us after the latter making a chunt of things, there woulda been no treble, and along with his sitter in Europe quite an achievement that could a been.

    McGregor at best is 3rd or 4th choice no.10, last thing we need is him at LB, offers nothing defensively.

    Izzy will be sorely missed and along with Gamboa ably covered both fbs in there absence.

    Farewell Izzy, thanks for the memories.

    Guy was unplayable in his early days here.

    Unless we have a backup signing lined up I think this is a strange decision. He may be loosing legs a bit but still a great backup option
