AC Milan defender Dario Simic has revealed his interest in joining Celtic this summer. The 32-year-old Croatia international is currently away at Euro 2008 but is hoping to secure a move to the SPL champions after the tournament. Simic, who has also been linked with a move to Galatasaray, started just one Serie A game for Milan last season. "Galatasaray want me to join them and Celtic want me too," he told the Daily Record. "If I could choose there is no doubt I'd prefer to join Celtic. "They are a big club with an amazing football culture and there is nothing more exciting than the prospect of playing in a Glasgow derby against Rangers. "I am talking about the situation to Milan and hoping a move can take place. "My desire is to play outside of Italy next season. "I've been here a very long time with Inter and AC Milan and I want to taste a new league."
