The South Korean arrived from FC Seoul in January and has been in good form of late, leading to the 21-year-old scooping the Clydesdale Bank Young Player of the Month award for October.

While delighted to receive the accolade, the midfielder has promised fans there is more to come from him, as well as insisting his award should be shared among the whole Celtic team.

He said: "I am not at my best yet. There is more to come from me.

"I didn't expect this reward. But it's not for me, it's for all the players who have been playing recently."

Celtic boss Neil Lennon, speaking ahead of Wednesday night's SPL clash with Hearts at Tynecastle, was full of praise for the young midfielder.


"Ki has been fantastic," he said. "I'm delighted with his attitude and the patience that he showed at the start of the season.

"We knew we had a good player there. He manipulates the ball well under pressure and he has a good presence about him as well.

"I like his temperament and he brings added composure to the game. His all-round game has come on leaps and bounds."

Meanwhile, Ki has hailed the Hoops after their 9-0 demolition of Aberdeen at Parkhead on Saturday.

Title hopes

He believes if Lennon's men can keep up this level of performance, they can win the league.

He said: "We didn't expect 9-0. Maybe five or six but especially in the second half, we dominated the game and punished them.

"It was an unbelievable result. It was my first time experiencing 9-0 and it won't happen in my life again.

"If we had lost again it would have been very hard to catch Rangers so that's why we worked harder in training and in games.

"If we keep playing like this I think we can win the league."
