Yesterday, reports from Spain claimed that Celtic were interested in signing Atletico Madrid youngster Rodrigo Riquelme but the Daily Record are now claiming that those stories are wide of the mark.

They say that a senior source at Celtic has rubbished those reports, claiming that The Hoops have zero intention of making an offer for the attacking midfielder.

Celtic were linked with a move for Riquelme earlier this season, and at the time, former Hoops’ star Alan Thompson exclusively told Read Celtic that the youngster could be an excellent addition to Neil Lennon’s squad.

However, things have changed across the entire globe since that moment in time, so it’s understandable that The Hoops have had a change of heart.

With Celtic putting in offers for both Albian Ajeti and Ivan Toney in recent weeks, it looks like they are in the market for a forward player but it seems that it won’t be Riquelme who arrives at Celtic Park during this window.
