A revelation in his first season in Scottish football, Izaguirre ended the 2010/11 campaign in possession of the awards for SPFA Players’ Player of the Year, SPL Player of the Year and Football Writers Player of the Year – a remarkable individual achievement.

The Honduras internationalist represented his country at the 2010 World Cup and was snapped up by Celtic later that summer from Montagua, making an impressive debut in a 1-0 win over Motherwell.

Assured in defence and a potent attacking threat, Izaguirre’s progress was then curtailed because of a broken ankle at the start of the 2011/12 season. The full-back was an impressive performer for Celtic in season 2013/14 and committed his future to the Hoops at the end of that campaign, signing a new three-year deal.

After starring for his country at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil, he has continued to be a regular in the side under Ronny Deila. Izaguirre scored his first Celtic goal in four years in the 6-0 League Cup victory over Partick Thistle in November 2014, adding another in a 2-0 win away to Kilmarnock at the start of 2015.
