The Mexican Team of Santos Laguna have formalized a recent agreement with Celtic FC of Glasgow, Scotland in the wake of Mexican players going off to European Leagues. It has been more so since Chicharito Hernandez was transferred to Manchester United from Chivas of Guadalajara.
The recent news of the transfer on loan of Gustavo Ruelas to Celtic FC from Santos Laguna FC have lead many people to talk about whether or not he will be staying with Santos or going to Celtic.It is important for Celtic supporters to know more about their latest loan.
Gustavo Ruelas was born in Fontana, California on Mar. 18, 1991 and holds double Mexican and American Citizenship. His height is 1.86 meters and he weighs 78 kilograms which leaves me wandering about the measurements in pounds
He also plays for the Under 20 group of the US Soccer Team as well as the Santos Laguna FC. He also once played for the Chivas USA team in the same age group. He has yet to debut in the First Division of the Mexican League.
Ruelas has been taking the news in stride by saying that he is happy and surprised about his meteoric rise in football/soccer. He states that while footballers/soccer players expect to progress as much as possible, he did not expect to go so far and so fast.
Regardless, Celtic FC have not confirmed nor denied the arrival of Ruelas to their team or to Scotland. Ruelas has been in conversation with Efrain Juarez who is in Glasgow concerning the deal which will land Ruelas with Celtic FC.
While Celtic FC have not confirmed nor denied the arrival of Ruelas, the possibility exists that he will be training exclusively in Scotland.
It is great that Santos Laguna and Celtic FC (which is another favorite team) are now in agreement about players. It is also refreshing to see the interest in Mexican players as well as Mexican American ones such as Ruelas who has the advantage of dominating English.
It remains to be seen whether Celtic FC will confirm or deny the news about the arrival of Gustavo Ruelas. Regardless, it is the beginning of a new era for football/soccer teams and fans in Scotland and Mexico.
