Palace puzzled by reported Celtic interest in keeper Speroni

Crystal Palace boss George Burley insists he knows nothing of any reported interest from Celtic in stopper Julian Speroni. The Argentine shot-stopper has been linked with a move to Parkhead following Artur Boruc's switch to Fiorentina last week.

The 31-year-old has now been linked with a Parkhead switch, but Burley insists he remains the club's No.1.

"Unfortunately in football you get speculation, especially if you've got good players and Julian is a top-class keeper," Burley told the South London press.

"But I don't know anything about Celtic.

"Julian is first-choice and we've got Lewis Price as our number two. Julian is a model pro and showed on Saturday [against Chelsea] what a fine keeper he is."
