Celtic should sell reported Liverpool target Emilio Izaguirre if the right offer is made, at least that's the opinion of Hoops legend Tom Boyd.

The Honduran has enjoyed a dramatic rise since moving to Glasgow for £650,000 from Motagua last summer, and capped off a fine season by being named SPFA Players' Player of the Year and Scottish Premier League Player of the Year.

Naturally, the 24-year-old has gathered admiring glances from the Barclays Premier League, with Liverpool reportedly his most notable suitors.

Click Liverpool initially reported that Kenny Dalglish - himself a former Celtic idol - had been to Parkhead to watch the left-back in action earlier this season, and a summer move could reportedly be in the offing.

And Boyd believes it would be a 'no-brainer' to cash-in on Izaguirre, should a substantial amount of money be put on the table.


"I would love to see him stay with Celtic but if he continues to improve like he has done then he's bound to attract interest from England," the former Celtic captain told the Daily Record.

"The fees are over-inflated in the Premier League and if a decent offer comes in for Izaguirre then the club couldn't knock it back.

"That's the position most teams are in everywhere - and it's certainly the case here in Scotland.

"So if a massive offer is put on the table then it's a no-brainer."

Along with Izaguirre, Liverpool have also been linked with Newcastle defender Jose Enrique and Anfield graduate Stephen Warnock.
