He said: "This is the biggest game in Scotland, the biggest game in the SPL and there isn't a player in the country who wouldn't want to play in these matches. Not only is it the biggest derby in Scotland I think it's the biggest derby in the world.

"I watched them in Poland long before I got here and all over my country people watch this match. I'm a Celtic player and I realise how lucky I am to have the opportunity to play in this fixture. I really, really love them. I love the atmosphere. I love everything about them.

"That's why I'm going to do everything I possibly can to get fit and play in the next one, especially after the result in the last one. I need to be on the winning side in the Old Firm derby once again."
