Teenage Celtic midfielder Dylan McGeouch is looking to push on for the rest of the season after featuring as a late substitute in Sunday's Scottish Cup semi-final against Hearts.
The 19-year-old was thrown into the action at Hampden after 82 minutes and had an immediate impact on the tie, which had looked set for extra time when Gary Hooper cancelled out Rudi Skacel's opener.
But a controversial penalty for the Jambos in injury time - which was converted by former Hoops forward Craig Beattie - ensured there would be no time for Celtic to rescue the match.
McGeouch, who arrived at the club with an injury and then spent several months regaining full fitness, hopes to get more game time to impress boss Neil Lennon in the remaining five matches of the season.
He told Celtic's official website: "I just need to keep training and impress the manager and hopefully me and a few of the other young boys can get a chance between now at the end of the season.
"I didn't think I would play as much because of the injury.
"I thought this year I would be bedding into the squad but I've done more than that, so I'm excited about that and I'm looking forward to next season."
As regards playing against Hearts, he said: "It was great for me to get a wee chance at the end.
"I thought I did okay when I came on, taking people on and getting forward.
"We got the goal and then sadly we lost the penalty at the end and that ruined my chances for the day as well because if the game had gone on a wee bit longer it would have given me more of a chance to have an impact."
