Celtic trio James Forrest, Tom Rogic and Charlie Mulgrew could get new contracts, suggests manager Ronny Deila.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told The Scottish Sun that Tom Rogic, Charlie Mulgrew and James Forrest could all get new contracts.

“We are going to meet this month and things are going forward,” Deila told The Scottish Sun. “I don’t have any doubt he (Forrest) wants to stay but you never know what options a player has. That goes for every player, you can’t have full certainty until the contract is signed.

"Tom Rogic is still going on as well, hopefully we can get a deal done. Charlie Mulgrew is also in that category. The most important thing is getting him injury-free and then we will see what’s happening.”

Rogic, who is 23 years of age and plays as an attacking midfielder, has been on the books of Celtic since 2013. The Australia international’s current contract with the Scottish Premiership giants runs out in June 2017.

Mulgrew, who is in his second spell at Celtic at the moment, is 29 years of age and can play in defence or in midfield. The Scotland international’s current contract with the Bhoys runs out at the end of the season.

Forrest has been at Celtic his entire career so far and is a very highly rated winger. The 24-year-old has earned 12 caps for Scotland and has a contract with Celtic until June 2016.

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 52 points from 22 matches, six points above second-placed Aberdeen.
