Ryan Christie, will return to Celtic Park after a 18-month loan at Aberdeen, and he knows it’s make-or-break time.
He has helped secure two successive back-to-back places for the Dons and been capped by Scotland.
He hopes to get more caps against Peru and Mexico before he comes back to fight for his position at Celtic.
He revealed: “I haven’t spoken to Brendan Rodgers since the end of the season. He told me to enjoy this trip, come back for pre-season and we’d take things from there.
“But I’ll really need to hit the ground running, I know that.
“You always worry about losing your sharpness, but I always enjoy pre-season and I know how important this one is.
“I need to have a good pre-season, but I have every confidence I can come in and be a success at Celtic.
“I know I can fit into the manager’s plans there and really kick-start my Celtic career.
“I’m a different player than I was 18 months ago.
“For a start I’m involved at international level.
“At club level I helped Aberdeen finish second again and I feel I’m a better all-round player.
“I have a hunger and desire to win games.
“At Aberdeen we really pushed on, so these are important qualities I can take with me to Celtic.”
He added: “These games are totally new to me, as they are to most of the boys. Most of us haven’t been in this part of the world before.
“We are facing two teams who are going to the World Cup, so we know it will be tough.
“But you want to test yourself against these teams. We know it will be challenging, but we are more than confident we can get good results.
“These are the games you want to be involved in.
“But these games are also the start for me. You don’t really get a close season any more and it’s important I do well in these matches before I head back to Celtic.”
