Boruc upbeat about the future
Former Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc is looking forward to a new challenge after turning down a contract extension at Fiorentina.
The 32-year-old's move to QPR foundered when Inter Milan's Julio Cesar became available but the Poland international remains optimistic about his next move having had interest from Ukrainian club FC Dnipro and Germany's Werder Bremen.
'I'm fit and available and a little bit surprised to be in this situation following two good seasons in Serie A with Fiorentina,' Boruc, a free agent, said.
'I was offered an extension with Fiorentina but felt it was the right time for a change and have had several other offers which just didn't feel right at the time.
'I almost signed with QPR before Julio Cesar became available but despite that I am looking forward to my next challenge.'
Boruc spent five years at Celtic between 2005 and 2010, making 153 league appearances, before moving to Fiorentina.
