Mexican Juarez departs Celtic

ESPN staff

Mexico international Efrain Juarez has confirmed that he has left Scottish Premier League champions Celtic to join Club America in his native country.

Juarez, 24, spent the first half of last season on loan at La Liga outfit Real Zaragoza, having failed to make himself a feature in Neil Lennon's Hoops side.

In total, the former FC Barcelona youngster appeared 20 times for Celtic, scoring twice, but will now move on.

"In my experience there were very good moments and a few that were not so good. In the end I don't consider it a disappointment," Juarez said on Celtic's official website.

"The coach, Neil Lennon, is always seeking changes and I was among them. He changes the players and for the beginning of the second part of the season the team started to work, so that wasn't good for me."

The Scottish club added: "Everyone at Celtic would like to wish Efrain every success in his future career."
