Celtic or Rangers would be getting a 'very exciting player' if they can seal a deal for QPR striker Bright Osayi-Samuel, says Kevin Phillips.

The two Glasgow sides are in for the attacker and are prepared to do battle to land his signature.

Phillips - a former Aston Villa, Sunderland and England striker - has followed Osayi-Samuel closely and reckons the player would do a job in Scotland's Premiership. Though he has urged the player to remain down south for now. He told Football Insider: "It would be a big signing for one of those do but I would like to see the kid stay in England. Those two clubs will be playing European football and that is a big draw.

"The kid did so well last year I think he deserves a crack at one of the lower Premier League sides and I am sure there are a few sniffing around. I would like to see him develop in the Premier League because he did so well last season.

"If Rangers or Celtic got hold of the kid they would be getting a very exciting young player."

We told how the player is out of contract in June next summer and could pen a pre-contract in January.
