Craig Gordon: On Chelsea's list

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Chelsea did make an approach for goalkeeper Craig Gordon – but he delivered a clear message.

The Blues are busy making plans to sign a new No.2 goalkeeper should Asmir Begovic be allowed to leave Bournemouth but, while the Celtic stopper Gordon is clearly on their shortlist, Rodgers has warned he will not come cheap.

“There has been an offer but nothing that we would (make us) even think about moving him,” said Rodgers.

“When the club spoke to me about it, my message was very simple. He is not a player we want to sell.

He added: “It is certainly not his valuation, that is for sure.

“I don’t want to put any numbers on it. The message is pretty clear. He is not for sale.

“I repeat again, if a player is to go out of Celtic then the club will get their worth for the player.

“It will be at our valuation, irrespective of what the perception is of the league.

“In the real world, every player has a valuation but there are four days to go in the window.”

Conte, meanwhile, remained coy about the prospect of Begovic leaving the club after the Bosnian featured in the 4-0 win against Brentford. The Potters odds on their next game is already available with a great Bonus Bet365.
