Celtic have rejected a bid from Chelsea for goalkeeper Craig Gordon, but the Premier League leaders are set to return with another bid for the Scottish international.

Gordon is one of three goalkeepers Chelsea are considering as a replacement for Bournemouth target Asmir Begovic.

Gordon has less than six months to run on his contract with the Scottish Premiership champions, but Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted the 34-year-old remains firmly part of his plans.

Following Wednesday's 1-0 win over St Johnstone, Rodgers said: "I heard something before the game and I'm not surprised. There's lots of speculation about many of our players."
