Cifuentes told Football Scotland: "I think that it's a rumour, and as for any contact, my agent is handling that.

"I understand that there is interest but nothing concrete.

"I want to have the opportunity to leave for Europe.

"Celtic is a big club with everything that they play for. I had heard of the club before [the interest started]."
