Ibrox Stadium of Rangers
According to The Daily Record, Old Firm duo Rangers and Celtic are interested in securing the services of the 24-year-old striker.
The Scottish Sun has claimed that Forest in the Championship in England are looking at the possibility of landing the Scotland international in the January transfer window, adding that a £2 million offer could be enough.
Neilson told BBC Sport about Shankland: "I don't think there will be any bids getting entertained in January, that is for sure.
“The owner [Mark Ogren] was over last month and spoke about the importance of keeping Lawrence and making sure that we get ourselves out of this league.
"Every player has his price but the value of going up would heavily outweigh that, not just financially but also the prestige and with the fans. I expect him to be here at the start of February."
Good signing for Rangers, Celtic or Nottingham Forest
Shankland may be playing in the second tier of Scottish football at the moment, but the 24-year-old striker has done enough over the past few seasons to suggest that he would be a good signing for Rangers, Celtic or Forest.
According to BBC Sport, the Scotsman has scored 17 goals and provided two assists in the Scottish Championship for United so far this season.
