Efrain Juarez’s career at Celtic looks set to be at an end after manager Neil Lennon said it “might be best” for the player to leave the club.
The Mexican midfielder, a £4m signing from UNAM Pumas off the back of his appearance at the 2010 World Cup, has failed to establish himself in Glasgow.
Juarez also had an unsuccessful loan spell at Real Zaragoza earlier this season and, after 19 appearances for Celtic, is set to exit in the summer.
“Efrain hasn't figured that much this season, even during his loan time at Zaragoza,” Lennon told the Evening Times.
“It might be best for him to move on and try to further his career elsewhere.”
The 24-year-old, who has two years left to run on his contract, hasn’t made a single appearance for Celtic this season and played 15 times during his stint in Spain.
The last outing for the 39-times capped player came against Motherwell on May 15 last year, coming on as a substitute for Georgios Samaras with 15 minutes left to play.
