Fergie warns Celtic over St Ledger

23 January 2010 04:16
The Republic of Ireland defender has returned to Deepdale following a loan spell at Middlesbrough but Celtic boss Tony Mowbray is keen to take him away again.

Ferguson is keen to keep St Ledger, however, and has told the Bhoys they have "no chance" of landing the 25-year-old at the moment.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat by Chelsea in the FA Cup, Ferguson said: "They have enquired but are a million miles away from getting Sean. The value was set when he went to Middlesbrough.

"I have had a couple of conversations with Sean and he is perfectly happy here. I definitely want to keep him. He is one of the best defenders in the league.

"I have no doubt he can play at a higher level but there is a valuation. If someone meets it I might have a different conversation with Sean. Celtic have no chance with what they are offering."
