Sky Sports News is reporting that Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy has no intention of joining Celtic. The Bhoys are keen to bring the Welsh hitman back to Parkhead, either on a temporary or permanent contract, following his loan stint there from Newcastle in 2005.

However the 32-year-old, who has a year to run on his City contract, has made it clear he has no interest in rejoining the Scottish Premier League giants.

Bellamy has previously ruled out signing for any club on loan, stating his intention to see out his contract at the Etihad Stadium should a full-time deal fail to materialise.
