Mikael Lustig Says Goodbye To Celtic After Nearly Eight Years

Mikael Lustig Says Goodbye To Celtic After Nearly Eight Years

Celtic fullback Mikael Lustig last night said goodbye to the club after nearly eight years at Parkhead.

The Swede joined Celtic from Rosenborg in 2012 and went on to win 16 trophies during his time in Scotland.

"I had no idea how much this club and everything that comes with it would mean to me when I signed seven-and-half-years ago," Lustig wrote on Instagram.

It’s time for me and my family to move on, start a new chapter in life.

To make a post on Instagram isn’t enough to express my feelings and thoughts about the situation. I wish I would’ve had the chance to get a proper goodbye.

I just want to say thank you to everyone I’ve had the honour to meet and work with at Celtic, all the players and staff. The memories will stay with me forever.

Thank you to all of you that made Glasgow feel like home for me and my family for so many years. I will never forget your support.

Hopefully I’ll see you all soon. I’ll definitely be back for the 10 in a row party!

The 32-year-old has been linked with moves back to Sweden and to Belgian side Genk.

Celtic players Kieran Tierney and Scott Brown both paid tribute to Lustig.
