Mikael Lustig: The defender's future was the subject of speculation last sea

There was speculation about the full-back's future last season and he was linked with a move away from Scotland.

But full-back Lustig, 26, is settled with life at Celtic and will only consider his options when his current contract expires in 2015.

"I have two more years here then we'll see what happens," said the 2011 signing from Rosenborg. "I'm happy, though, and I like Celtic as a club and Glasgow as a city.

"Celtic are bigger than I thought they'd be when I signed. You see how much it means to the people when you come here.

"I came from a small club in Scandinavia in comparison, where things didn't always work out the way you want as a player.

"But here we have people for everything at Celtic. It's a really big club."

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
