Kilmarnock boss Mixu Paatelainen has dismissed reports linking Cameron Bell with a move to Rangers.
The Killie chief insists there is nothing in the 'speculation and rumours' and is confident the keeper will be staying put.
Bell's current contract is set to expire at the end of the season, fuelling the transfer gossip, but talks regarding an extension have been opened.
Paatelainen hopes fresh terms can now be thrashed out, despite recently bolstering his keeping ranks with the acquisition of Anssi Jaakkola.
He feels Bell, who made his Scotland debut against the Faroe Islands in November, will be a key player for the club for many years to come and is adamant that no approach has been made for any of his players.
"That's just speculation, just rumours," he said.
"We expect that when the players are playing well every week. Conor Sammon is one, Craig Bryson is another, Alexei Eremenko too.
"There have been plenty of headlines regarding our players but nothing concrete."
While looking to retain the core of his squad in the January transfer window, Paatelainen is also hoping to add.
He is, however, keeping his cards close to his chest for now.
He said: "We always have trialists so there is no point going into names and talking about them. It's too early."
