The Scotland international has been in and out of Neil Lennon's plans for large parts of the campaign due only to a variety of niggles including groin and hamstring complaints.

However, the 21-year-old is now looking to become an ever-present in the run-in to the Hoops' likely SPL title win, with the possibility of a William Hill Scottish Cup final appearance still on the cards.

He said: "I am feeling good. I am doing a lot of running with the sports scientist and I just need to get more games.

"There has not been anything seriously wrong and maybe that's a good thing but it has been really frustrating, coming back and getting injured (again) so hopefully with a little bit of luck I can stay fit for the rest of the season."
