"I wasn't at Ibrox or Parkhead last week so that's how far those rumours went," he said: "It's hard to tell if he will be at Birmingham when the transfer window closes but at the minute I'm there unless I'm told otherwise.

"To be perfectly honest, I wouldn't entertain a move to Glasgow. I'm happy to be playing outside Scotland at the minute, especially with the kind of press that's been going about for Rangers and Celtic. I'm quite happy to be away from it. I read the papers and I watch the television and there has been some bad press for Rangers recently. I'm afraid that's what you get at the two biggest teams, there is always stories to be written, whether they are good or bad."
