Celtic's Gary Mackay-Steven speaks about settling in and the future

Celtic Football Club

One Celtic player is looking forward to the rest of his campaign and the many more to follow with the Bhoys.

Celtic player Gary Mackay-Steven has been speaking to the club’s official website about settling in following his January move from Dundee United.

The 24-year-old moved to Celtic Park along with Stuart Armstrong and plenty of matches against United meant the pair had to be patient before they could string a run of games together, as they were cup-tied for the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish Cup.

Now those matches are in the past Mackay-Steven can look ahead to playing consistently between now and the end of the season, and from his most recent comments it is clear he is settling in at his new club.

Three goals and one assist in just eight appearances for Ronny Deila’s side prove what a canny addition he was and he appears to be enjoying his new surroundings.

“I’m really enjoying Glasgow,” Mackay-Steven said. “I didn’t know too much about it before but we’ve moved into the West End and it’s a beautiful area there.

“I’m looking forward to my first summer here as well. I badly need a tan, although I’m not sure if I’ll get it here but I’m looking forward to the months and years ahead.”

Celtic are on the verge of adding the Scottish Premiership to the Scottish League Cup they won earlier this season, and a treble still remains a distinct possibility.

Whatever the rest of this season has in store, it is clear Mackay-Steven is happy with his move and he looks set for a very successful spell with the Bhoys.
