But Burrows would not go into details over the names of certain canidate. 

He said: "You’ll understand we can’t say too much until we’re in a position to confirm something Graeme.

Meanwhile, Ange Postecoglou has hailed Cameron Carter-Vickers as the best defender in Scotland.

The Celtic manager reckons he has "the best defender in the league".

It comes after the Hoops brushed Hearts aside at Tynecastle to qualify for the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.

Carter-Vickers got the third and final goal in the 3-0 win, while Aaron Mooy and Kyogo both netted during the first-half.

Talking to Viaplay Sports reporter Rob McLean after the game, Postecoglou was asked about the American going under the radar in terms of his performance levels. 

The manager clearly didn't agree with that sentiment. He said: "I don't know about that. I'd probabaly say he's the best defender in the league. If anyone disputes that, I'm happy to put up an arguement. I don't think he goes under the radar at all.

"He's been an outstanding player for us over the last 18-months or so. Again, he's a guy who is constantly working hard at his game to improve.

"It was great for him to get a goal today because, you know, defender's love those kind of things. But it's what he does at the other end that's important for us."
