Celtic have Celtic have “no chance” of signing Filip Benkovic on a permanent basis this summer, according to the Express.

The Dane says that he is very thankful to then Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers for giving him the opportunity to play at that level.

As quoted by InsideFutbol, Sviatchenko said this:

“I am a very positive person. ”

“I don’t look back and think of my time at Celtic as anything sour. It was a beautiful experience for me and for my family. I loved it. ”

“I have Brendan to thank for some of the biggest games of my career.”

“That Invincible season was so special and I have amazing memories of it.”

Celtic target Memisevic signs new deal.
Samir Memisevic has signed a new deal at Groningen, Inside Futbol have confirmed. The defender has been a reported summer transfer target for Celtic, as Neil Lennon looks to bolster his squad. The 25-year-old’s new contract is thought to run until the middle of 2021, in what represents a blow to the Hoops. Memisevic is capable of thriving as either a right-back or a centre-back, shining for Groningen this season. He also has two caps for Bosnia, making his debut in a 3-1 defeat to Spain back in May 2016. Now that Memisevic has committed his future to Groningen, Celtic will have to look elsewhere for reinforcements.
