Coventry City manager Adrian Boothroyd says there has been no fresh offer from Celtic since their initial bid for Kieren Westwood.
The Bhoys moved for the ex-Manchester City and Carlisle United shot-stopper last month, although their offer was swiftly rejected.
Celtic boss Neil Lennon is on the lookout for keeping reinforcements following the sale of long-serving keeper Artur Boruc to Fiorentina.
Boothroyd claims Celtic's offer was nowhere near what the club would be prepared to accept, regardless of the ongoing contract talks with the keeper.
"They made an offer about three weeks ago and Keiren knows all about it," said Boothroyd.
"It's £3.50 and a bag of haggis, which is nowhere near enough for a player of that quality.
"I don't want to lose someone who I think is the best goalkeeper in the division, someone I want to do is build a team around him.
"Negotiations (regarding a new contract) are ongoing, as they always are, it's a pain in the neck but that's how it is I'm afraid when other people are
"The offer is not really worth talking about because it's derisory and derogatory.
"So for now Keiren is very much our player. I want him here, (chairman) Ray Ranson wants him here and I imagine every single Coventry fan, player and member of staff wants him here. This is the place for him to further his career."
