Celtic winger Oliver Kapo is ready to show Neil Lennon what he can offer after recovering from a calf strain.
The former Wigan and Birmingham man's availability has been restricted of late due to injury.
However, he featured off the bench in their late Boxing Day success over St Johnstone and is keen to impress Lennon.
Celtic tackle Motherwell on Wednesday although Kapo has an eye on featuring in their Old Firm clash against Rangers on Sunday.
Raring to go
"It is true that I had a little trouble with my calf muscle but that is all behind me now and I am raring to go," he told the Daily Record.
"I am just so happy finally to have the chance to get back playing and to have been able to help the team get a victory.
"I have to prove myself on the pitch with performances like the one against St Johnstone. That is going to be the key for me.
"If I play with freedom and show my skills, I am confident I can contribute significantly to the team and impress the manager.
"The Old Firm derby is one of the greatest games in the world. It can be compared with the likes of Inter Milan against AC Milan.
"Any player who likes to play on the biggest stages thrives on such occasions and I am no different.
"I would relish the opportunity to play against Rangers on Sunday but I would also relish the opportunity to face Motherwell."
