Bell: Shiels clarifies comments

Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels has denied lying when he claimed Ipswich were interested in Rugby Park goalkeeper Cammy Bell.

Shiels last week said Ipswich were one of a number of English clubs competing with Rangers for the signature of the Scotland international, who is out of contract in the summer.

But Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy later denied any knowledge of the club's reported interest.

McCarthy told the East Anglian Daily Times: "It was a lie if he confirmed it.

"Do you want me to say it again? There's no truth in it - he's lying or he's telling fibs. Is lying too strong a word?

"I've not spoken to him and if somebody from this club has spoken to him, they've done it without me saying so. If that's the case, then I'm going to be pretty cheesed."

Shiels told STV on Monday: "An agent contacted me last week to say Ipswich were interested in Cammy and he also mentioned other clubs from England.

"I'm only relaying a message when I was asked the question about Cammy's future."
