Scotland’s Birmingham striker James McFadden on Monday ruled out a move to either Old Firm club.
The 25-year-old former Motherwell player has been linked to both Celtic and Rangers in recent months after Birmingham were relegated to the Championship.
Speaking ahead of the friendly against Northern Ireland at Hampden on Wednesday, McFadden was reticent about his future at Birmingham but is not keen to move back to his homeland.
“To be perfectly honest I wouldn’t entertain a move to Glasgow,” he said.
“I’m happy to be playing outside Scotland at the minute, especially with the kind of press that’s been going about for Rangers and Celtic. I’m quite happy to be away from it.
“I read the papers and I watch the television and there has been some bad press for Rangers recently.
“I’m afraid that’s what you get at the two biggest teams, there is always stories to be written, whether they are good or bad.”
He added: “It’s hard to tell (if he will be at Birmingham when the transfer window closes) but at the minute I’m there unless I’m told otherwise.”
