Izzet Issues 'Come And Get Me' Plea To Celtic
News Archive

Izzet wants Celtic move (Allsport)
05/16/2002. Leicester midfielder Muzzy Izzet has issued a 'come and get me' plea to Celtic boss Martin O'Neill.

O'Neill managed the Foxes before taking over the Scottish giants two-years ago.

Izzet told the Daily Record newspaper: "I don't know what the situation at Celtic is and what their budget is but I'm hoping Martin will be in touch because I will definitely speak to him."

"There is a £6m offer from Middlesbrough on the table and there has been speculation that I've had no other firm offers.

"I'm off to the World Cup with Turkey on 17 May so my future probably won't be decided until I come back.

"I can't say too much as Martin hasn't been in touch but only an idiot wouldn't consider joining Celtic.

"The prospect of playing Champions League football appeals to me a great deal."

Izzet is quite a good player and when he knocked back Middlesborough last season it seemed clear that he was hoping a bigger club would come in for him.

This has failed to materialise and now with Leicester relegated he has been forced to breathe life into the previous enquiry from Steve McLaren while still making it public he is available. I think many were surprised O'Neill didn't move to bring Izzet sooner along with Lennon.

You would have to love the irony if Muzzy joined Celtic who then joined Nationwide division one...:howler:
