Toronto's DeRosario will not trial with Celtic

Toronto FC have denied reports that club captain Dwayne DeRosario is set for a trial with Scottish giants Celtic. 32-year old DeRosario will reportedly travel to Glasgow to undergo some training with the Hoops ahead of the January transfer window but Toronto general manager Earl Cochrane has dismissed that rumour.

"Dwayne is not going on trial with Celtic or any other club," Cochrane told "We have not received word from anyone and expect him to be with TFC when training camp opens next month.

"Dwayne is currently under contract with us and is a very important player for us moving forward."

A report in the Glasgow Evening Times quoted Celtic boss Neil Lennon as saying the Canadian international was certainly a player of interest.

"He's a player who has been put to me. I've not had time to see much of him. But hopefully today I will get the chance to view some footage of him to see what I think," Lennon said.
