The 27-year old has undergone an arthroscopy on his knee and was expecting to be ruled out for the remainder of the season but was thrilled with news that it is likely to be three months maximum.
"I was going down there really expecting to be out for the rest of the season," he told Celtic View.
"But I got told that it was three months and there's the possibility, if rehab goes according to plan, I could shave a few weeks off that.
"It could turn out to be 10 weeks which is a massive bonus for me. It could have been 10 months - but now it's 10 weeks."
