VIRGIL VAN DIJK reckons he will still be at Celtic player by the time the League Cup Final against Dundee United on March 15 comes around.

As the clock ticked down on tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline, there were no moves for the £8million-rated central defender.

The classy Dutchman has been linked a move to top-flight English clubs such as Arsenal, Sunderland and Southampton since the August window closed.

On his future, Van Dijk replied: “Interest is fine. It’s always good to have people watching you.

“But I can do nothing with interest and it looks like Celtic don’t want to sell me, so it looks like I’m staying here.

“I’m happy, of course, because Celtic is an amazing club and I love being here.”

Van Dijk looked back at Sunday’s League Cup semi-final triumph and said: “I didn’t expect more from Rangers*, to be honest.

“We analysed them very well and we knew what to expect.

“It was a great experience, everything like the build-up and the tension.

“There was a lot of pressure on us of because everyone expected us to win, so we did well, especially the first-half.”
