Celtic left-back Liam Scales has opened up on his game time so far since making the move to Scotland – admitting that he is willing to play the waiting game to get a chance in Ange Postecoglou’s side.

The 23-year old was boosted with a call-up to the Irish national team this morning (Read More), despite making just one appearance for the Hoops since joining, off the bench against Raith Rovers.

Speaking to Irish media outlet – Pundit Arena, Scales admitted that he is still getting used to the step up and demands of playing in Postecoglou’s side, stating that he is willing to wait and work to get his chance in the first team.

“I knew it was going to be a step up, and I’m still getting to grips with the system and the way Ange wants to play.

“It’s another step up in intensity with the kind of levels of fitness levels required.

“I just have to be patient. Once I get my opportunity, it’s important that I take it. That’s all I can really go off.

“I’m not really used to not playing games, so it’s unusual, but I’m enjoying it. I just have to be patient and keep working hard.”

Left-back has arguably been one of the most unsettled positions since the beginning of Ange Postecoglou’s reign at Parkhead.

We have already seen five options play in that area of the pitch, with Greg Taylor, Adam Montgomery, Josip Juranovic, Boli Bolingoli and Liam Scales all have varied times on the pitch.

That position is very much still up for grabs in terms of a first-team spot, and with Greg Taylor currently out injured, you would imagine this will be a good chance for Scales to get settled and fight for his place in the team in the next couple of months.
