Teemu Pukki is desperate to force his way into the Celtic starting line-up ahead of next week's Champions League meeting with Barcelona.

The Finnish striker has scored two goals in two league outings since his summer arrival from Schalke and wants that form to continue so he gets the chance to take on the might of the Catalan giants at Parkhead on Tuesday night.

"Of course I want to play in those games against Barca. To be in the first 11 would be like a dream so I have to work hard in the games and hope I can prove myself to the manager," he told the Daily Record.

"There is still one week to the Barca game and we have one league fixture before that as well so we have to concentrate on the match that is in front of us."
