Celtic move would tempt McCormack

Ross McCormack says he would be tempted by a move to Celtic but that a switch to the English Premier League would be more difficult to turn down.

The former Rangers and Motherwell player is attracting interest from a number of clubs after finishing the season as Cardiff's top scorer.

He said: "I've got a soft spot for Celtic. I supported them as a kid.

"Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to play in the Premiership. If I get the chance, it'll be hard to turn down."

The 22-year-old, who has three Scotland caps, scored his first international goal against Iceland in April and netted 23 times in his maiden season with Cardiff as they missed out on a play-off place on goal difference.

McCormack 'flattered' by 6m price tag

"I don't think I'm over the disappointment," he told BBC Scotland.

"It's hard being told that you missed out on the play-offs by one goal, especially for me personally - I missed two penalties in the last four games and if I had scored one of them, we would've been in the play-offs.

"Right now, I'm happy where I am at Cardiff and I'm enjoying my football."
