Ex-Celtic star Emilio Izaguirre has signed for hometown club Motagua.

The former Hoops left-back has been on the lookout for a new club since he left Celts for the second time last year.

It had been reported that Izaguirre was on the radar of clubs in Japan, China and America.

However the defender has opted for the club where he made his name back home.

It is understood the 33-year-old will be allowed to leave the Honduran club side if a bigger and better deal comes along abroad after six months.

Izaguirre spent nine years at Parkhead, winning 13 trophies during his time in Glasgow.
