Fisher learning plenty from Celtic first team stint

Celtic teenager Darnell Fisher admits his football education has gained a massive boost since he has become a regular part of the first team.

The 19-year old Englishman has appeared in eight Scottish Premier League matches this season, deputising for the injured Adam Matthews and Mikael Lustig at right-back, and he believes the opportunity has helped him develop quickly.

"It inspires me," he said. "It is good, it helps me, it is not intimidating, I can learn.

"You can talk to them and ask them certain things about the game. Both are very good full-backs. Adam is quicker and Mikael is good in the air.

"I get little bits from each of them and you try to put your own stamp on it and try to be better.

"I just wanted to play as much as possible this season. I didn't think I would play this much but I need to keep pushing.

"You don't know what is going to happen in football, especially here. I have to keep pushing and trying to learn."
