Saramas: Has not rejected fresh extension
Skysports.com understands that striker Georgios Samaras has not turned down a contract extension at Celtic as he has not been formally offered one.
The Greece international is out of contract in the summer and it had been thought for much of the current campaign that this season would be his last at Parkhead.
Following Celtic's 2-0 success over arch-rivals Rangers, a game in which Samaras scored twice, it was thought the Bhoys had put a new 12-month deal on the table.
However, skysports.com can confirm that Samaras has not received a fresh offer from Celtic despite ongoing discussions, let alone turned down the chance to extend his Bhoys stay.
Samaras is available to speak to clubs from around Europe over a Bosman transfer and Serie A club Lazio are believed to be interested in his signature along with clubs in Germany.
Despite the speculation Samaras has an affinity for the famous club and would be happy extending his stay and even seeing out his career with the Glasgow side.
