Celtic and QPR will do battle to land the signature of defender Richard Dunne.

The 33-year old Republic of Ireland centre-back has been released by Aston Villa and is already attracting interest from Hoops boss Neil Lennon.

However, SunSport suggests that the relegated R's are also showing curiosity for Dunne who played 25 minutes for Ireland in a friendly with Georgia last weekend - his first competitive appearance since last summer's Euro2012.

Despite Lennon's need for a new centre-half, it is believed that QPR boss Harry Redknapp is leading the race to sign the former Everton and Manchester City man.
