Aidan Nesbitt has suggested that his loan spell at Morton has made him a much more rounded player, and insisted that he is confident that he could push for a chance in the Celtic first-team upon his return to Parkhead, the Evening Times reports.

Nesbitt is still awaiting the chance to make his Scottish Premiership debut for the Bhoys, and has not played at all under Brendan Rodgers having joined the Championship club on loan for the season.

His time with Jim Duffy's men has been fairly successful from a personal point of view, with Nesbitt featuring 22 times in the league and also playing against Rangers in the Scottish Cup in February.

And Nesbitt insisted that the spell has proved incredibly beneficial to his development, before later adding how hopeful he is about earning a chance in Rodgers' side once he returns to Celtic.

"I feel as if I have added a few strings to my bow since coming here and I’m definitely a more rounded player," he said, as reported by the Evening Times.

“I’ll be going back to Celtic this summer a far better player than I was when I went back last summer, that’s for sure.”

“I’m just concentrating on improving my game and doing the best I can for Morton just now, and then we’ll see what happens after that," he went on to add.

“I’m confident in my ability though, and after having this experience, I’m sure that I will be in a position to go back and look to get myself into that Celtic squad.”

Nesbitt, unfortunately, is moving back into an area of the squad where Celtic already boast a tremendous amount of depth with the likes of James Forrest and Scott Sinclair performing so well just off the striker. 

But with Patrick Roberts set to return to Manchester City in the summer, Rodgers may deem that he should give Nesbitt a chance to show exactly what he has learnt with Morton.
