Mackay-Steven confident of finding his best form at Celtic

Celtic star Gary Mackay-Steven feels he will produce his best performances for the Bhoys this season.

Celtic midfielder Gary Mackay-Steven has told the club’s official website that he’s confident he will find his best form at the club.

Mackay-Steven was full of praise for the teammate who joined him in moving to Parkhead last winter, Stuart Armstrong, as his teammate earned a call-up into the Scottish national side under Gordon Strachan.

He’s promised that there is more to come as he looks to turn around his own form to the point where he may be considered for a call-up to play for his country.

“Stuart’s been playing well and it was only a matter of time before he got the call-up, and hopefully he’ll get his debut,” he told

“I know that the form will come for me. I’ve not been playing to what I know I’m capable of these past few weeks so I’ll focus on my performances and get back to the levels I know I can.”

One game at a time

Mackay-Steven can’t be too focused on trying to force his way into the Scotland setup.

He just needs to focus on his Celtic form and if he can start influencing games at club level, the international football will take care of itself.

He can’t set himself back by letting the frustration of not being able to play for Scotland get the better of him.

He can trust manager Ronny Deila to give him plenty of chances and then it’s all down to the player to prove why he can be first choice for both club and country.
