Former Celtic Midfielder Landry Nguemo Dies at 38

Landry Nguemo, the former Celtic midfielder, has died at the age of 38. The tragic news was confirmed on Thursday following a road traffic accident in his home country of Cameroon.

Nguemo, known for his tough-tackling style, spent the 2009/10 season on loan at Celtic Park from French club Nancy. During his time with the Hoops, he made 43 appearances under the management of Tony Mowbray.

Nguemo’s contributions to the team during his brief stint were marked by his robust midfield presence and commitment on the pitch. His tenure at Celtic remains a notable part of his professional career, which also saw him play for several other clubs in Europe.

Meanwhile, the Cameroon Football Federation has paid homage to their former star.

A statement read: “The Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT) has just learned the tragic news of the passing of former Indomitable Lion Landry Nguemo in a traffic accident.
