Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal has set his sights on a return to action in the Scottish Cup final next month.
Kayal has been sidelined since December with an ankle injury he suffered in the Old Firm win over Rangers.
The Israel international was forced to go under the knife and it was feared he would miss the rest of the season.
But the 23-year-old is hoping to return to action sooner than expected and wants to be available for the Scottish Cup final if champions Celtic overcome Hearts in this weekend's semi-final.
"I still hope to return this season and win Celtic the Scottish Cup," Kayal told the Daily Record.
"This championship was sweet because we worked so hard all season and we believe we're the best team.
"Every player in our squad contributed to the cause so we could all enjoy this wonderful moment."
