The midfielder has been in Glasgow for six years already but has no intention of upping sticks.

And he has already revealed he's desperate to keep the versatile 28-year-old beyond his current contract.

But Bitton admits the situation is not in his hands at the moment - though he'd be content if it was.

Asked about a potential extension, Bitton said: "It’s something you need to ask Peter Lawwell instead of me!

"But I love this club and I want to stay. 

"I am settled here and my kids live here, so we will see."
