Riordan has hit out at boss Gordon Strachan by accusing him of 'talking rubbish' and admitted his future lies elsewhere after a lack of first team opportunities.

The relationship between the pair reached a new low on Monday when it was revealed that the striker is refusing to pay a club fine of £1000 for failing to attend a fan's function.

Now Burnley boss Owen Coyle - who saw a £500,000 offer for the player rejected in the January transfer window - is set to move in and end Riordan's Celtic hell.
