Michael Duffy has told The Dundee Evening Telegraph that he will aim to use his loan spell at Dundee to impress new Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.

The 21-year-old winger has joined Dundee on a season-long loan deal from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic, as announced on the Dee’s official website.

The youngster joined Celtic from Derry City last year, but he has yet to make a breakthrough into the Bhoys' first team.

Duffy played on loan for Alloa Athletic last season and scored three goals, as Jack Ross’s side got relegated from the Scottish Championship to the Scottish League One.

The Northern Ireland Under-21 international has said that he wants to do well during his loan spell at Scottish Premiership side Dundee and impress Celtic boss Rodgers.

“I’ve got two years left on my deal with Celtic, so my target is to go back there having proven a point with Dundee,” Duffy told The Dundee Evening Telegraph. “I’m hoping I can go out and impress this year.”

“I’ve not spoken with the manager (Brendan Rodgers) yet but there’s a lot of players in my position, so I know how it is,” added the youngster.

“There’s a lot of wide players and in the No 10 position, so I’m hoping I can impress at Dundee to prove I’m worth a shot. This is my first season in the Premiership, so I’m hoping it goes well.”

Dundee will feature in the Scottish Premiership next season, and this will allow Celtic manager Rodgers to keep a close eye on Duffy.

The winger, who is only 21 years of age, has a lot of potential, and Dundee fans should be optimistic about him being a success at Dens Park next season.
