Petrov is pleading with Celtic to let him go, not only for the good of the player but for the good of the club!
He said, 'Of course it is affecting me.
'This has been dragging on for months. Everybody knows my situation but it's up to Celtic.
'They know how I feel and as soon as they let me talk to someone I'll be happier. Right now my form is poor definitely. I can't hide that. I'm not happy in my situation and so I hope to sort it out quickly.
'I want it to end. I want to try something else, go somewhere else and I hope Celtic respect my wishes.'
Celtic have losed their third pre-season friendly in a row to poor sides.
Petrov is worried that if he doesn't move he will be playing for a poor side next year;
'We are only two weeks away from the start of the league and we don't look as if we can defend our championship.
'We have been flat in our matches and at the moment we are nowhere near the form that won us the championship last season.
'So if we don't start playing well it will be a very hard season.
'I fear for us in the Champions League with performances like this.
'Every mistake is punished and it's the whole team who are to blame.'
His comments have been well timed as Celtic have till tomorrow to give Portsmouth an answer on our final offer.
