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."
