The 23-year old former Chelsea and Carlisle United man is preparing for Sunday's Scottish Cup final with Celtic and says he will let his hard work do the talking on the day and for the remainder of his career which has not hit the heights that were expected when he was a Stamford Bridge youth.
"When people ask me if I can make it there again I always refer to what my nana tells me, 'The cream always rises to the top'," he said.
"If I'm good enough, I will find my level and hopefully that will be as soon as possible. I have a good work ethic and always give my best. I put in extra training after training and if I did make it back to the dizzy heights of Chelsea I'll have deserved it.
"I broke my leg the week before I was due to make my youth team debut but to be frank if I had been good enough at the time Chelsea wouldn't have let me go.
"I had some learning to do and I feel every experience I've had has helped me up until now.
