Burnley manager Owen Coyle has confirmed he has received no offers for any of his players in the January transfer window but admits he is looking to strengthen his squad.
Leading scorer Andy Gray is thought to have caught the eye of a number of clubs after netting 11 Championship goals this season.
But Coyle insists he has yet to be contacted by any clubs hoping to lure Burnley's star assets away from Turf Moor.
"We have not received bids for any of our players," said Coyle.
"We are looking to strengthen every area of the park and I have spoken to a number of clubs about potential signings."
Celtic, though, do not appear to be one of the clubs contacted by Coyle, who is adamant he has not approached Bhoys boss Gordon Strachan about signing out-of-favour midfielder Derek Riordan.
"I think it's like anything, we're being linked with him because Derek's saying he might be moving on and because I've stated before that I'm a big admirer of him," Coyle told the Lancashire Telegraph.
"I've always liked him as a player since he was a young lad at Hibs.
"But I've not spoken to Gordon about him and I'm not one who speaks about other people's players.
"I imagine people have put two and two together on this one and came up with the wrong answer.
"But we've not made any bid for Derek Riordan."
