Academica's Ricardo not fussed by Celtic rumours

Academica goalkeeper Ricardo Jorge Novo Nunes insists he is not concerned about rumours linking him with Scottish giants Celtic.

The 31-year old Portuguese gloveman has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for the Hoops who are putting in place a contingency plan in case star performer Fraser Forster departs in the summer.

Hoops scouts are believed to have watched Ricardo in the weekend's 0-0 Primeira Liga draw with Belenenses but the number one at the Coimbra club is not getting carried away.

"I know about the clubs who have been watching me but that does not concern me," he told the Daily Record.

"I am a professional and I just want to help Academica get as far up the league as possible."

It is also suggested that German outfit Hannover and Spanish side Sevilla are showing significant interest in Ricardo.
