Efrain Juarez has confirmed he is starting to get down over his lack of playing time at Celtic.
The Mexico international made a good early impression at Parkhead following his summer move from UNAM Pumas.
However, he has since found himself on the outside looking in of late having started just one game since October.
He is trying not to let his lack of action get him down, although he is now starting to 'despair' at slipping down Neil Lennon's pecking order.
"I have started to despair at Celtic. I just want to play," stated Juarez.
"However, I just have to get on with it and keep working hard. That is the key."
