Daily Mirror list Chelsea FC, Everton, Arsenal and FC Barcelona as potential suitors for the Scotland international following his impressive start to his Celtic career.

Manchester United ended up in second place in the Premier League table last season to secure their best finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.
