Scotland will warm up for their European Qualifier against Martin O’Neill’s Ireland with a friendly against the Middle Eastern country this Friday at Easter Road and the Hoops winger has his eyes set on some game time after a solid end to a stop-start season for the champions.
The 23-year-old was in and out of Ronny Deila’s team during the 2014/15 campaign as he battled for full fitness but told the Celtic View: “I’m buzzing about getting called back up again.
“From when I was 19 to about 21 I was always in the squads then I got injured and missed a few, but if I get some game time it’ll be a great way to cap off the season for me as I feel like I’ve definitely kicked on since December and the second-half of the season. The hope is to just keep going.
“I’ve played more games, which is what I wanted, and I’ve been available for most of the matchesin the second half of the season. I’m now looking forward to pre-season and I really want to just continue that progression there.
“My fitness feels good and has got better as the weeks have gone on. Every game, every training session has felt better and I want to build on that and keep it up.”
