"Coming back to Celtic would still be my first choice," Samaras told the Daily Mail. "I had a great time at the club and the loan deal we made in January worked out really well. It helped Celtic, but it helped me too.
"Everything was correct during that time. I think the supporters took to me and I feel really happy about that. I also formed good relationships with my team-mates, the coaching staff and everyone else inside the club. I hope that can all continue in the future because there was so much support and love shown to me at Celtic last season.
"I'm waiting to see what will happen over the next days. At the moment, I don't know what my future holds and it is still relatively early in the summer. I'm on holiday just now, trying to recharge my batteries and waiting for some news."
