Australia international Daniel Arzani is keen to impress at Celtic next season after seeing last term wrecked by injury.

Arzani joined the Scottish giants on a two-year loan deal from Manchester City but managed just one appearance as an anterior cruciate ligament injury ended his campaign early.

The 20-year-old is now eager to make up for lost time and he doesn’t think a change in manager at Parkhead will hinder his chances, with Neil Lennon now in charge after Brendan Rodgers left for Leicester City.

“I’ve set my eyes on next season being a big one for me,” he told Fox Football Podcast. “A lot of people of have been saying I have potential…but at the end of the day there’s still a lot unproven.

“Right now my main focus is just getting back from this ACL injury and feeling good.

“For me [Rodgers’ departure] doesn’t change anything. It was a challenge for me to play under Brendan Rodgers at the beginning – his mindset was to have his attackers defend a lot.

“It’s not an easy team to break into.” Arzani joined City from Melbourne City and was a member of Australia’s World Cup 2018 squad.

The forward has been capped six times by the Socceroos and has one international goal to his name.

Celtic are 1.33 to win the Scottish Premiership next season, Rangers can be backed at 3.20 and Hibernian are 101.00.
