Celtic defender Thomas Rogne insists that he is ready to win back his place in the first team and help the club win the Treble.
The Norwegian came back into the Hoops' line-up as a substitute in their 2-0 win over Hamilton earlier in March.
But his hopes of making his first start since the end of January on Sunday against Inverness were scuppered due to a waterlogged pitch.
Rogne is now likely to be given a run of games in the side due to Swedish defender Daniel Majstorovic's injury that keeps him out until the end of the season, and he is eager to repay manager Neil Lennon's faith in him.
"There is fierce competition for places in our team. But the manager has shown me I'm in his plans," he said.
"I'll do my best to cement my place in the team again. We still have a lot of big challenges ahead.
"The league title is by no means a certainty, even though we're playing very well at the moment.
"We know we will have to fight until the end but I have faith that we will do it."
Rogne has confidence that his side can achieve their goal if they play to their full potential, and if they do, no one can stand in their way.
"As long as we play our game we are better than all the other teams in the division," he added.
"We want the Treble - that would be an incredible achievement for the players and the management team in our first full season together.
"It will also be incredibly difficult but we'll give everything to make it happen."
