Gary Mackay-Steven confirms he's loving life at Celtic

Celtic Stands

Gary Mackay-Steven has found game time limited at Celtic this season.

Celtic attacker Gary Mackay-Steven has told the club's official website that he is loving life at Parkhead.

Mackay-Steven joined Celtic in January from Dundee United, and became a key player in the side as they won the double. 

This time around his chances have been limited, with the winger struggling to produce his best, but he insists that he is still enjoying being part of the Bhoys set-up. 

“Our team has been doing well and when you get that chance you have to take it, but I’m loving my time here and relishing the prospect of challenging for a place and hopefully getting one," he said.

Mackay-Steven enjoyed a wonderful pre-season over the summer, but for some reason his form did not carry over into competitive action.

The 25-year-old looked a shadow of his former self over the early part of the campaign, with his performances regularly ineffective. 

Ronny Deila persisted with him for a time, but in recent weeks he has been taken out of the line of fire, with his confidence visibly knocked.

There are no doubts over Mackay-Steven's quality, though, and the hope is that he can still have a big part to play this season, if he can rediscover the form everyone at Parkhead knows he is capable of producing.
