John Kennedy is determined to make the most of his new chance at Celtic.

Injuries have opened the door for the defender and he said: "I know better than anybody that you can be up or down. I had my place at the start of the season then got a wee injury and I've been fighting to get back in since.

"It's tough for anyone who is out the side, not just me. I'm just back to being a player now and I shouldn't be thought of any differently. Like anyone else, I can get a bit downhearted when I'm not in the team but the rules are the same for everyone. You have to keep working hard and show you're ready if needed."
