The 25-year old Irish striker scored his third goal of the Scottish Premier League season with an 87th minute free-kick in the 1-0 win at Dundee United and after the game, felt he had done everything in his power to be offered a new contract by the Glasgow giants.
"I am doing what I can (to win a new deal)," he said.
"I am enjoying my football at the minute. It wasn't my best performance today but as a striker you are paid to score goals."
Bhoys boss Neil Lennon agreed: "I don't think he can do much more. He is a very important player to us now."
