Norwich City winger Robert Snodgrass admits that he's "flattered" to be linked with a move to boyhood club Celtic but insists he's fully focussed on trying to keep the Canaries in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old still has a year left on his contract at Carrow Road, but could be tempted by a switch to the club he supported as a boy.

However, Snodgrass has vowed to put any talk of his future on hold until the summer as he bids to help his current employers stay in the Premier League.

“If things go according to plan and we stay in the Premier League I’ll have a year left and I’ll honour that. As a player, you want to play at the highest level and that’s why I’m giving everything I can to keep Norwich up," he told the Daily Record.

“Everything I do is geared towards keeping us in the Premier League as this club gave me my chance. It’s a fantastic club and I’ve loved every second here.

“I’m flattered to be linked with Celtic as I’ve watched them since I was a kid. I was also in Scottish football and there’s always a part of me that thinks I’ve a point to prove there.

“The Premier League is where it’s at and I’d be lying if I said anything other than that. But if other options come up in the summer, I’ll look at them.”

Ironically, Celtic manager Neil Lennon has repeatedly been linked with a move in the other direction with the Canaries reportedly keen admirers.

"I don't know what he wants to do or if he wants to go on and test himself with a club down south. But if he did get the Norwich job he would be coming into a fantastic club with great supporters and great people about the place," Snodgrass added.

"Whatever decision Neil Lennon has to make he'll make it himself. But he's done a fantastic job at Celtic in the last few years and good luck to him in the future."
