Honduras star Izaguirre doesn't want Celtic rest

Emilio Izaguirre is in no mood to be rested by Celtic manager Neil Lennon.

It was suggested that the Honduran international, who has had a busy few months juggling club and country obligations, may sit out Wednesday night's Champions League clash with Barcelona but Lennon says the player insisted on taking his place in the line-up.

"He doesn't want to be rested," Lennon said.

"There will come a time when he has to step out, but at the minute he looks so strong.

"His effervescence emanates through the entire team."
