It's the potential transfer that has got everybody talking and the rumour that will not go away.

Will Portuguese superstar Jota make a sensational to Celtic on loan in January?

The Portuguese winger has endured a nightmare time in Saudi Arabia with Al-Ittihad after his blockbusting £25 million summer move from Glasgow.

A return to Glasgow for the prodigal son has also been mooted for the player who provided 28 goals and 26 assists in his two full seasons at Celtic Park under former boss Ange Postecoglou.

It certainly seems to be a no-brainer for Brendan Rodgers and Celtic to pursue this transfer if they can get a deal over the line.

Meanwhile Matt O'Riley has spoken of his joy and immense pride at making his first start for Denmark.

O'Riley wore the number 10 jersey, which is usually the domain of Danish football legend Christian Eriksen.

However it didn't all got to plan as the Danes were stunned 2-0 by a struggling Northern Ireland side in Belfast.

O'Riley is now targeting a Denmark call up for Euro 2024.

He said: "It was pretty cool to be handed the No.10 jersey before the match. It is a number that the good players wear. So a bit of pressure, but it's not something I thought about.

"I'm obviously proud of the first international match, but a 2-0 loss to Northern Ireland...I'm a little sad about that.

"I hope to stay in the team and play a part at the Euros next."

The 22-year-old earned fulsome praise from Northern Ireland manager David Healy who compared him to a former Chelsea and England legend.

Healy said: "He's a wee bit like Frank Lampard. He makes those delayed runs into the box."

Former Motherwell defender Stephen Craigan said: "This season he's taken his game to a new level. The one thing he needed to add is goals and he's done that this season.

"He's signed a new long-term contract and he's going to be going places. If you're a Celtic supporter, you'll enjoy watching him."
