Danish side AaB are keen on ending Celtic misfit Oliver Abildgaard's spell in Glasgow by trying to tempt him into a move home to his first club.

The Hoops snapped up the 26-year-old on a season-long loan from Russian club Rubin Kazan in September and became the third player to sign from there after Carl Starfelt and Sead Haksabanovic moved to Glasgow.

However, he's yet to make any kind of impact and has failed to even start a game for Ange Postecoglou in any competition - he's come off the bench on six occasions in the league and he also came on in the Bernabeu against Real Madrid in Celtic's heavy defeat in the Champions League.

But he hasn't featured since coming on for the final ten minutes in a 2-1 win at Fir Park at the start of last month, although he was an unused sub against Rangers at Ibrox this week.

Reports in Russia suggested Celtic would be prepared to cut short his loan deal and send him back to Rubin Kazan, who are keen to either loan him out again or sell him.

And Aalborg outfit AaB have made enquiries about whether Abildgaard would be interested in a return to his former club in Denmark, where he spent five years before moving to Russia.

However, Abildgaard is believed to be keen to explore all his options before committing to a move back to his homeland.
