But the Hoops boss is confident the defender, above, won't be tempted away. The 20-year-old's stock is rising and his ability to play either as a centre-back or full-back has got scouts form south of the border heading to Glasgow to watch him in action.

The Scottish Sun quotes Rodgers however, who told reporters after Saturday's win over Partick Thistle that although there is strong interest, the player will remain at Parkhead, explaining that; "I'm not anxious, but I wouldn't be surprised".

"He loves being here, he knows he's developing". He's becoming a top class young player.

"He's still got improvements that he'll make, but he's in a good place, a happy place". He genuinely actually loves playing for the club and there are very few players like that nowadays. Players love football, but don't necessarily love the club. Kieran loves football and Celtic.

"Listen, there may come a time when he's that good and so young, with so much potential, that someone comes in".

"I think it helps that he's an absolute Celtic daft. So I think for him, because he's a great lad and I love and enjoy working with him, it's starting to take its toll on him a wee bit".
