Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has ruled out losing Kelvin Wilson in January while he is also critical of Celtic's public transfer dealings.
Forest are already resigned to losing central defender Wilson as the SPL giants have already agreed a pre-contract with the 25-year-old.
Celtic have now lost first-choice stopper Daniel Majstorovic for three weeks due to injury leading to manager Neil Lennon openly discussing the possibility of bringing in Wilson sooner.
Forest are said to want £600,000 to part company with Wilson before the transfer window closes, although the ex-Preston boss believes that would cause too much disruption.
"I think Celtic have done a lot of talking in the press," explained Davies in the Daily Record.
"There are only 13 weeks of the season left and having to bring in players now, either on loan or permanently is something you have to be careful about.
"Losing Wilson and having to then replace him, with the disruption that would entail? For me, it is a no-brainer."
