Mowbray cools Senderos talk

20 January 2010 08:57
Celtic boss Tony Mowbray has played down reports linking him with a move for Arsenal's unwanted defender Philippe Senderos. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger had claimed that Mowbray had been stepping up his interest in the Switzerland international with Senderos quoted as saying he would welcome the chance to move to Glasgow. However, when asked about Senderos' proposed transfer to the Bhoys, Mowbray would only say: "There has been no bid. There is no decision to be made about Senderos. You have been watching too much television. "We have an interest in many players, I would suggest. For whatever reason, that came out today but that is only one enquiry of many players that we have asked about. So I wouldn't be holding your breath too much at the moment." Senderos, whose days at the Emirates Stadium appear to be numbered after Wenger brought Sol Campbell back to the club earlier this month, had said about the speculation: "I am very honoured that a big club like Celtic are interested in me and a loan deal right now would suit me perfectly. "My main priority is to get back playing regular football. I really miss that. "The World Cup this summer is a really big thing for me. I know that if I'm not playing regularly my chances of playing in South Africa will be badly affected. "It would be my second World Cup and I want to get the best possible build-up to it. "Unfortunately, I haven't played a lot of football recently and that's why I feel I have to leave Arsenal. Hopefully something will be in place over the next few days but I'll wait and see."
