bid from Scottish giants Celtic. Snodgrass said Glasgow
is my home town and I stay five seconds away from the stadium,
Im a Celtic fan. When that (speculation) happens and so
many people were texting me, I believe its in the newspapers
back home. Theres so much speculation especially during
the transfer window, but Im here at Norwich and have 18
months left on my contract. Im actually focused on doing
as well as I possibly can at this minute. I think the performances
Ive shown over the past couple of weeks, I just need to
get the ball in the back of the net and get my assists up."
