Celtic defender Gary Caldwell has hit out at the club over their failure to agree a new contract with him at Parkhead.
Caldwell's current contract expires at the end of the season and he could leave the club on a free transfer.
Talks over a new deal have stalled as Celtic have refused to meet his demands and Caldwell is unhappy at the club's stance.
"My agent went in and asked for figures which weren't anything near the highest paid player at the club," Caldwell told the Daily Record.
"They were on a par with the players who are playing week in, week out, which I have done now over the last four years.
"I've proved I'm an asset to the football club and we asked for figures which fell in line with that.
"If the club say that's too much then I think they are kidding themselves on that they can pay others a lot more than they can pay me.
"If that's their opinion of me as a footballer then we'll need to move on."
Former Hibernian man Caldwell has blamed the impasse on his contract on Celtic and claims he can't remember when chief executive Peter Lawwell last spoke to his agent.
"I want to play my football for Celtic. That's always been my stance and it's the club who have not been forthcoming," added Caldwell.
"Allowing my contract to run down could probably be good for me financially, but I have a young family and we want to stay in Scotland with Celtic.
"It's gone very quiet, though. If you are asking when my agent last had talks with Peter, it was a long time ago - a long time ago. It was left in the club's hands. Since then, nothing.
"I've spoken to the manager about it, but what was said will be kept between us."
