Burley plays down Speroni speculation

Crystal Palace manager George Burley insists the club have received no approach from Celtic for goalkeeper Julian Speroni. The Scottish Premier League giants were linked with a move for Argentinian Speroni over the weekend as they look to replace Artur Boruc, who was sold to Fiorentina for £2million. Speroni has been named the Eagles' player of the year for the past three seasons and looked in fine form again during Saturday's 1-0 friendly defeat by Chelsea. And Burley told the South London Press: "Unfortunately in football you get speculation, especially if you've got good players and Julian is a top-class keeper. But I don't know anything about Celtic. "Julian is first-choice and we've got Lewis Price as our number two. Julian is a model pro and showed on Saturday what a fine keeper he is."
