Celtic midfielder Marc Crosas rules out summer exit

Midfielder Marc Crosas insists he has no plans to leave Celtic in the summer.

The Spaniard, 22, was a regular under former Celtic manager Tony Mowbray but has failed to establish himself under interim boss Neil Lennon.

However, the former Barcelona star said: "I've two more years at Celtic and I want to finish my contract.

"Who knows? I may well want to sign another contract when the time comes because I love it here. I certainly don't want to leave."

Crosas, who joined the club from Barcelona in 2008, has been linked with a move back to his homeland following reported interest from Malaga.

Barca also have the option of bringing him back to the Nou Camp as part of the deal that took him to Glasgow.

A new manager could come in and not want me and, if that's the case, then I have to find another option

Crosas's only appearance under Lennon came in the Scottish Cup semi-final defeat by Ross County.

But the midfielder said: "I don't even want to think about leaving Glasgow. It's a wonderful place and every time my family visit they see how happy I am. That's important to me.

"You never know what can happen in football. A new manager could come in and not want me and, if that's the case, then I have to find another option.

"I'm a footballer and above all else I want to play. The only game I've played for Neil Lennon was against Ross County and it's been hard watching since.

"But every day I give my best in training to change the manager's mind and when I get a chance next season I want to take it."

Crosas is determined to help Celtic land silverware next season after watching Rangers clinch their second successive Scottish Premier League title.

"It was another reminder that Celtic's season ended without silverware for the first time in seven years," he said.

Crosas added: "I feel there are things I need to help put right next year. It's not just been a bad year for me personally but also for the club."
