Strachan dismisses transfer talk
Celtic manager Gordon Strachan
Gordon Strachan was guarded with the media
Celtic manager Gordon Strachan has dismissed speculation linking Artur Boruc, Derek Riordan and Thomas Gravesen with moves away from the club.

Strachan also refused to discuss the futures of Neil Lennon and Stephen McManus, who are both set for contract talks in the coming weeks.

"Speculation about Boruc, Riordan and Gravesen - it's not reality," the Celtic manager said.

"When it becomes reality, we'll speak about. That's it finished."

Strachan was speaking ahead of the Scottish Cup semi-final against St Johnstone.

"As for Lennon and McManus contracts, any contracts will be discussed when the dust has settled on the season," he added.

Goalkeeper Boruc has been linked with former Celtic manager Martin O'Neill's Aston Villa.

Speculation has linked out-of-favour midfielder Gravesen to former Celtic midfielder Roy Keane's Sunderland.

Meanwhile, forward Riordan has become frustrated at his lack of starts since signing from Hibernian.
