Some Celtic supporters have been reacting to the very real possibility of Mikael Lustig leaving the club. The 32-year-old is expected to end a seven-and-a-half year stay in Glasgow this summer after he spoke about a tough recent period.

Lustig told Sportbladet: “The last few weeks have been tough. Not on the field, but off the pitch.

“I am proud of how I have handled the situation and those closest to me, the players and the leaders at Celtic know what has happened.”

Lustig’s cryptic message was followed by a social media post from his wife Josefin. She posted a photo of herself and the Swedish international on Instagram alongside the caption: “Wherever you go I will follow”.

Lustig’s departure hasn’t been confirmed but it could be in the next few days. If he does move on then he’ll leave after a period of unprecedented success for the club. He’s been a big part of Celtic for the past seven seasons, and deserves all the plaudits he gets.
