Paddy McCourt has insisted he remains focused on Celtic after being linked with a move away this summer.

The winger grabbed the headlines in midweek following a scintillating performance in Northern Ireland's 4-0 victory over the Faroe Islands.

A number of clubs are now thought to be tracking the 27-year-old, with Wolves reportedly leading the chase.

However, McCourt maintains that he has not heard of any concrete interest and is concentrating solely on doing his job for Celtic.

McCourt has struggled to establish himself as a regular starter in Neil Lennon's side but remains happy in Glasgow.

"I don't know about interest from elsewhere, to be honest," he told the Derry Journal.

"I'm a Celtic player and I enjoy playing there so as far as I know that's where I am."

Messi comparison

McCourt admits he was delighted to play so well for Northern Ireland on Wednesday, when his two goals attracted lavish praise and even comparisons with Lionel Messi.

"The supporters were fantastic. The last time they were singing my name when I came off the bench and to hear it again was a nice touch," he said.

"I've heard those Messi comparisons. It's a bit of banter.

"It was just good to get the result and I was pleased as well that we got the four goals in total. I was delighted to get the start though and to go on and contribute to the team.

"It was my first competitive start and I really enjoyed it. You always have a point to prove. The whole team had after the Faroes held us to a draw out there. To win the way we did was very pleasing."
