Tragic news as former Celt Landry Nguémo passes away

Landry Nguémo has tragically passed away at the age of 38. News came through on Thursday afternoon that the former player had passed away following a car crash in Cameroon.

The defensive midfielder joined in 2009 after Tony Mowbray took over as manager on an initial loan deal but Celtic had an option to buy.

In 43 appearances for Celtic, the Cameroon Internationalist assisted once before returning to parent club Nancy. Nguémo was an industrious player that provided some fine moments in an otherwise dismal season. The club, who parted with Mowbray in the March of that year, appointed Neil Lennon and the decision was taken to use the funds in a different manner.

Ngeumo, who was a French citizen, was an excellent player that would’ve likely kicked on beside Scott Brown had the pair continued. He did, however, enjoy a good career and it is an utter tragedy that his life has been cut short.

Rest in Peace, Landry.
