Celtic defender Mikael Lustig is still none the wiser on his future at the club, despite holding talks with interim boss Neil Lennon.
Speaking to Celtic TV, as cited on Celts Are Here, Lustig explains the tricky situation that he finds himself in.
Neil and I talked together shortly after he returned. We discussed a little bit about my situation and about what might happen next year. We’re both in a situation where we don’t know what the future holds come the summer.
I try not to think too much about the future but it’s always in your head, especially when you have a family. You naturally want to know what the future holds but in football that’s not always the case and I’m used to that. I’ve been here for a long time and I’ve loved every second of my time here.
The Swedish defender is out of contract at the end of the season and it remains to be seen if he will be offered a new deal at the club.
Under Brendan Rodgers, it appeared that Lustig would be on his way out, with the club looking to sign a new right-back in the summer.
The January addition of Jeremy Toljan from Borussia Dortmund seemed to suggest that the Hoops were planning for life after Lustig, with his seven-year stay at the club appearing to be coming to an end.
As part of his current deal, the club can trigger a 12-month extension on his contract.
Other Celtic players who could depart this summer
Dedryck Boyata looks likely to leave at the end of his contract, like Lustig, unless both clubs can come to an agreement in the coming weeks.
Filip Benkovic will return to parent club Leicester City over the summer, a move that has already been confirmed by Rodgers following his move to the King Power.
Darren Moore was eager to see the player return to West Brom, but it remains to be seen where his future lies after his sacking at the Championship side.
Celtic could look to extend his loan deal at the club to give them another option in the final third.
Celtic do not have an option sign Jeremy Toljan permanently as part of the current loan deal, so he could head back to Germany in the summer.
