Mikael Lustig is hoping Celtic’s stars remain with the club this winter despite plenty of interest from English clubs.

The likes of star striker Gary Hooper, midfield powerhouse Victor Wanyama, goalkeeper Fraser Forster and Israel international Beram Kayal are attracting interest from clubs in the Premier League but Swedish full-back Lustig has his fingers crossed that manager Neil Lennon can keep his squad intact ahead of the Champions League Round of 16 tie with Juventus next month.

“I want the squad to stay intact. But this is football and you never know what might happen,” he told the Daily Record.

“People come and people go. This is normal but I want every player to stay.

“I’m in no rush to go anywhere – I’ve been here for just a year. I’m settled and really enjoy playing for his club.

“I want to help us finish what we’ve started at this great club.

“We have many games to look forward to. We are still in four competitions, the main two being the SPL and the Champions League.

“We want to win the league and the two cups. We are in the semi-final of the League Cup this month and want to go all the way. It means we will have a lot of games to play in but we are really looking forward to all of them.”
