Left-back Emilio Izaguirre has returned to Scottish Premiership champion Celtic on a one-year deal.

The Honduras international won six titles in seven years in Glasgow before leaving the club for Al-Fayha in 2017.

However, Izaguirre cut short his time in Saudi Arabia and following reported interest from Hibernian, has re-joined Celtic, where he was a hugely popular figure for much of his first spell.

The move is subject to international clearance.
