Darnell Fisher analyses his first Celtic start of the season

Celtic FC

Darnell Fisher started for Celtic against Aberdeen over the weekend.

Darnell Fisher has told Celtic's official website that he felt his first start of the season went reasonably well.

The 21-year-old's campaign has been a frustrating one, as he has struggled to break into Ronny Deila's team.

However, Fisher was handed a starting berth for Celtic's 1-0 win over Aberdeen at the weekend and was pleased to have seen his efforts rewarded.

“I did alright, I think," he reflected. "I maybe should have scored in the first half but it was good to get the clean sheet and three points in the end.

“It was also great to sample the title party atmosphere. The fans have been great all season so it was a good day.”

Fisher has been billed as one of the brightest prospects breaking through at Celtic, and despite his slow progress this campaign, there are still high hopes for the future.

The right-back is blessed with great pace and is a natural threat going forward due to his all-round understanding of the game.

Deila has already shown his faith in youth this term and Fisher will be hoping to prove over the coming weeks that there is a bigger part for him to play.

The Bhoys have good options at right-back, but Fisher now has an opportunity to show that he deserves to keep the place and will be hoping to have a strong end to the campaign to stand him in good stead for next term.
