A number of Celtic fans have reacted to Burnley’s interest in signing Nir Bitton in January, with many offering different opinions.
The versatile midfielder is currently set to be out of contract at the end of the season, and Burnley are therefore looking at a cut-price deal for him in January.
And following the interest from Sean Dyche’s side, these Celtic fans have offered mixed reactions on whether Celtic should keep him or look to cash in on him.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
Bitton’s future at the club has certainly sparked healthy debate on social media, with many suggesting he deserves a new deal due to how useful his versatility is, while others think Celtic should accept an offer in January.
The Israeli may also have a say in the matter and with Burnley reportedly willing to offer the midfielder a significant pay rise, and move away could appeal to him.
However he knows how valued he is at Parkhead by Neil Lennon, and he may not want to risk moving away to a club who perhaps would not appreciate his qualities.
