Ledley determined to find full fitness as Celtic chase trophies

Joe Ledley is hoping he can regain full fitness as soon as possible so help Celtic chase a quartet of trophies this season.

The Scottish league leaders are alive and well in the two domestic cup competitions and are also in the Champions League Round of 16 and Ledley is determined to be a part of it.

The Welsh midfielder has not featured for the Hoops since December 8 because of a pelvic problem but is now back in training at the mid-winter training camp in Marbella.

"I started back training on Thursday and feel pretty well," he said.

"I have to rest and try to keep my fitness up as well, so it is nice to get some warm weather on my back and work hard.

"Hopefully I can be involved until the end of the season because it has been a frustrating time.

"No player wants to get injured and you just try to pick yourself up and go again.

"I've had a quite a few injuries this season but hopefully I can start playing regularly again."

He added: "I missed the home Champions League game against Benfica and it was hard because those are the matches you are determined to play in.

"I was in the stands and could feel the atmosphere. It just made me want to get fit again."
