Celtic defender Thomas Rogne is looking to kick on after putting his injury worries behind him.
The Norwegian made only his seventh appearance for the Hoops in Sunday's SPL win over St Mirren after being plagued by niggling injuries since his arrival last January.
The 20-year-old is now looking to push on and show both Celtic boss Neil Lennon and the club's fans just what he can do.
He said: "This year has definitely matured me. The injuries have been an experience - it's not a good one but it's still an experience.
"It's just like being a normal employee when you are sick. If you love your job it's frustrating when you can't be there.
"I want to go out there and show people what I can do and, when I don't get the chance to do that, it's frustrating more than anything.
"I don't feel like I've had my chance yet because there is always a setback. I haven't played a lot of games so I still have a lot to prove but hopefully I can do that soon.
"I played a few games last season and I think I did all right.
"We've also kept a clean sheet in the games I've played in this season but I still feel I have a lot to prove to the coaches, the players, to the fans and to myself.
"I know I can do better than what I've done so far."
Rogne believes his mental strength has helped him look to the future.
He added: "You can't really moan about it because it happens and there's nothing you can do about it.
"But my mental side is probably one of my strengths as a footballer. When something happens, I always manage to just forget about it and keep going.
"The doc and the physios have been brilliant with me. Their main job almost is just to keep me patient because all I want to do is get back on to the pitch."
Rogne was back in the team at the weekend after sitting out the defeat to Hearts through suspension following the first dismissal in his senior career.
The Norwegian admits referee Alan Muir was right to send him off when he hauled down Aberdeen striker Chris Maguire on the edge of the box during the recent 9-0 drubbing of the Dons.
He told Celtic View: "It was more embarrassing than anything to be honest. When you look at players' careers, you are always going to find a red card somewhere. These things happen.
"But it was bad defending. It should never have happened and it kept me out of the Hearts game, which was disappointing.
"The referee was right. I was the last man so it was a good decision."
