Santos Laguna's Benitez doubtful about Old Firm move

Ecuadorian striker Christian Benitez does not believe he will end up at either Glasgow club, Celtic or Rangers. The Santos Laguna star is attracting plenty of interest from clubs around Europe with the Old Firm rivals reportedly both making offers for the 24-year old.

But Benitez, who spent last season on loan with Birmingham City, says he is likely to end up somewhere other than Scotland.

"Celtic and Rangers are great teams, but I see nothing concrete," he told Sports Rumba.

"There are options in Spain, England, France and the Netherlands. We hope to open one of those doors and could go there and win."
