EMILIO IZAGUIRRE has rejected a new one year deal at Celtic and left Parkhead for the second time.

The 33-year-old Honduran left back has won 13 winners medal with the Hoops in two spells since originally joining from Motagua nine years ago.

He returned to Celtic in August after an ill-fated spell in Saudi Arabia with Al-Fayha and revealed earlier this month he'd been offered a new deal with Celtic.

However, he has now officially cut his ties with the club again and instructed his agent, Paulo Hernandez, to find him another club in Europe or in the MLS.

Izaguirre made it clear a couple of weeks ago he was wrestling with the decision whether to stay on in Glasgow.

He stated: "Neil Lennon has spoken to me and he wants me to remain at Celtic. But I want to be closer to Honduras when I play with the national team.

"I hope something comes up in the MLS for me. That's the wish of me and my wife.

"So my future is difficult to predict. My agent is dealing with it at the moment and when I return to Honduras in the summer, I will decide.

"It's difficult because my children have grown up here in Scotland. My son doesn't need a translator - he speaks to us in a Scottish accent!

"Only God knows whether I will remain in Scotland."

But Izaguirre - who is back in his homeland preparing for friendlies against Paraguay and Brazil before playing in the Gold Cup - has opted to sever his ties with the Hoops.
