Cardiff striker Ross McCormack has revealed he would be interested in a move to boyhood heroes Celtic.

Celtic have been linked with a move for Scottish international McCormack as doubts continue to surround the future of Scott McDonald at Parkhead.

McCormack, who began his career at Rangers, admits he would jump at the chance to join Celtic having been a fan of the club since he was a kid.

"I'm happy at Cardiff and focusing on getting the club into the Premiership," McCormack told the Sunday Mail.

"But everyone knows I'm a massive Celtic fan. I had a season ticket for Parkhead and always said I'd like to play for them at some point.

"Going there would interest any player."

Targets

Celtic also want to sign Preston defender Sean St Ledger but North End boss Darren Ferguson said on Saturday Tony Mowbray's side had not even come close to matching his £4.5million valuation of the player.

Mowbray is set to wrap up a move for Motherwell winger Paul Slane before the window closes, while there are also widespread reports the Parkhead club are locked in talks with Spanish side Real Mallorca over defender Ivan Ramis.
