Celtic target Barry Douglas comments on potential transfer

The Scot currently plays in Poland for Lech Poznan.

Celtic are said to be looking for a left-back this summer and have recently been linked with bringing Barry Douglas back to Scottish football.

The 25-year-old Glaswegian previously played for Queen's Park and Dundee United, before making an interesting move to Polish outfit Lech Poznan in 2013.

Celtic are said to be keen on the player, with FutbolNews.pl suggesting recently that Celtic will pay up to €700,000 for the Scot, who has one year remaining on his current deal at Lech.

Now the player himself has addressed those rumours. He is quoted by Onet as stating:

"It's just a rumor. I do not think about it. Apart from qualifying for the Champions League, my goal is now to get the attention of Gordon Strachan and the Scottish national team. Debut in the squad would be a wonderful thing."

Douglas has established himself at Lech Poznan this season, playing 25 times and scoring three goals for the club in an excellent Estraklasa campaign.

Poznan will also be playing in Europe next season, so leaving them would clearly be a tough decision for the player to make.

It certainly seems he is hoping to be playing in the Champions League with the Polish side next term, not with Celtic.

Celtic should however keep tabs on the player and hopefully bring him back to Scotland in the near future.
