When asked if he was on his way out of Glasgow following the 4-3 aggregate defeat, the 24-year-old said: "It's a terrible way if it ends like this but I don't know what's going to happen.

"I'm not looking for anything. It's a great place to be and they gave me an opportunity to show myself, so I'm very thankful for that.

"But if the right opportunity comes and it's the right opportunity for me then I'll consider it. But I think that's what any player would do."

When quizzed about Southampton's interest, Van Dijk said: "I can't say anything. I think you need to ask the board. I don't know what will happen in the coming days."
