Dundee United goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist is focused on his future at Tannadice amid transfer links to Celtic Park.

The goalkeeper has been in fine form this season and made the most saves of any goalkeeper in one Scottish Premiership match this term against Celtic. He kept a clean sheet in the 0-0 draw last Sunday in which his goal was peppered with shots, ending the Scottish Premiership title race in the process.

He recently hit 100 Tangerine appearances and his form has caught the eye of Celtic, who were linked with a winter window move alongside a host of European clubs. But the Swiss keeper is keeping his feet on the ground.

Siegrist said: “It’s better having speculation about your future than the other way, people saying: ‘He’s the last guy we want!’ I think that’s just the nature of football, if you play well then other teams are going to be interested but I’m happy here.


“We’ve still got some games to play and we have to go out there and represent ourselves well. We have to have personal pride in our performances. This season was just a case of staying in the league and I think, with us being in the top six most of the season, we deserved to be there but maybe it was a false reflection.

“Being in that good position, you were trying to make it work and aim for that top six but the season isn’t finished. There’s six games to go and we’ll go out there to try to win them because that’s what it’s all about.”
