Hibernian's Gary Caldwell has played down speculation linking him with a move to Celtic.
The Scottish international is out of contract at Easter Road in the summer and speculation north of the border has suggested that Gordon Strachan is taking a keen interest.
Caldwell insists he has heard nothing of any reputed Celtic interest - but he also admits there is no progress over contract talks with Hibs.
"Speculation about what I'm going to do or where I'm going to go doesn't bother me because it's inevitable when people reach the end of their contracts that kind of thing is going to happen," he said.
"As I've mentioned before, I'm a Hibs player and I want to do my best for the club until something takes place otherwise.
"If a contract becomes available here and I want to sign it then I would be delighted. As yet, there's no progress in that area because we're concentrating on playing games. I haven't heard anything and I'm just getting on with doing my job."
Another Hibs player being linked with the Old Firm is Scott Brown.
His former mentor Alex McLeish is reported to be keen on recruiting some of Scotland's brightest young talent and, fresh from their capture of Kilmarnock's Kris Boyd, Brown is now said to be the latest target.
