Released by the Navarrese in the 1996 summer, Castillejo resumed his career in Segunda División but also in the third level, with CD Numancia, CD Castellón, Gimnàstic de Tarragona – he netted 21 times as the club achievied promotion to division two in 2001, best in Group III, second overall – UB Conquense, CD Leganés and CF Reus Deportiu, retiring in 2008 at the age of 37.

Managerial career

Immediately after retiring, Castillejo started working as a manager, initially being an assistant with Reus in Tercera División. He was appointed head coach for 2009–10, leading the team to promotion in his second season.

Castillejo agreed on a return to former club Gimnàstic in late May 2013, being appointed for the 2013–14 campaign. On 4 November, he was relieved of his duties.
