Celtic winger Michael Duffy is hoping to impress new boss Brendan Rodgers during his loan spell with Dundee next season.

The 21-year-old joined the Scottish champions in February 2015 from Derry City but failed to force his way into first team contention and spent the campaign with the development squad.

Duffy spent last season on-loan with Alloa Athletic initially on a six-month deal before eventually agreeing to stay for the whole campaign.

The winger is yet to make an appearance for Celtic, who are priced at 1.25 to win the league, and will spend another term away from his parent club in 2016-17 as he continues his development.

Duffy is hoping he can enjoy a strong season at Dens Park as he looks to make a good impression on Rodgers.

Rodgers is yet to make contact with Duffy and the youngster insists he understands he is some way down the pecking order at the moment.

Duffy said: “I’ve got two years left on my deal with Celtic, so my target is to go back there having proven a point with Dundee.

“I’m hoping I can go out and impress this year. “I’ve not spoken with the manager (Brendan Rodgers) yet but there’s a lot of players in my position, so I know how it is.

“There’s a lot of wide players and in the No 10 position, so I’m hoping I can impress at Dundee to prove I’m worth a shot.

This is my first season in the Premiership, so I’m hoping it goes well.”
