Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Stevens is fully aware he is going to have to show significant signs of progress if he is to nail down a regular place in the line-up at Parkhead.

The Bhoys have a tricky run of fixtures in the Scottish Premiership coming up against the likes of Motherwell, Dundee United and Aberdeen.

A trip to Norway to face Molde in the Europa League group stages is also on the horizon for the Scottish champions and manager Ronny Deila will need his entire squad to step up to the challenge.

Kris Commons and James Forrest have stolen a march on Mackay-Stevens in the pecking order at Parkhead and the former Dundee United winger knows progress has to be made to break into the side on a regular basis.

He told the Scotsman: “I feel my levels have not been what I want them to be. I feel there’s a lot more to come, but I’m fit, I’m healthy, I’m feeling good so I am quite content that I will show what I can do in the coming weeks.

“We have got a strong squad at Celtic and the boys who have been playing have been doing well so you just need to keep your head down in training and when you get the chance take it. I am confident I will do that.”

First up for Celtic is a short trip to face Motherwell on Saturday, with the Old Firm outfit 1.30 to win, 5.50 to draw and 10.00 to lose to the Steelmen.
