Samaras committed to Celtic

Celtic striker Georgios Samaras has dismissed reports of a summer move to Palermo.

The Italian side have recently admitted their interest in the Greece striker, who found starting opportunities at Parkhead limited during the second half of the recently completed season.

However, the 25-year-old former Manchester City frontman claims he is happy in Glasgow and not looking to leave the Hoops.

"I am not open for talks with other clubs because I am very happy in Glasgow," he told the Scottish Sun.

"I have heard some talk, but nothing else. No one has spoken to me or my agent.

"To be honest with you, I am not looking to leave Celtic. I have a year to go and I am not looking to leave for Palermo or anyone else for that matter.

"I also believe we can achieve great things next season.

"My focus for now is the World Cup and after that I will return ready for pre-season with Celtic."
