GARY MACKAY-STEVEN believes his style of flair play and the Celtic system will prove to be a perfect fit.

The cavalier winger admits he is looking forward to adding even more creativity to Ronny Deila’s team.

Mackay-Steven bade farewell to Dundee United on Saturday by winning the Man of the Match award in his side’s 2-1 victory over Aberdeen in Saturday’s League Cup semi-final.

Now he wants to enjoy the plaudits in the famous green-and-white hoops.

The 24-year-old exciting talent said: “I like to get at teams and I like to dribble with the ball and take on players.

“I’m eager to add some creativity to the array of talent that’s already here.

“Hopefully, I can hit the ground running.”

The international added: “Naturally, there’s a lot of ability in the Celtic team.

“They play a lot of good football on the ground which suits my game, so it’s a bit of everything.”

Mackay-Steven has already proved his worth during this campaign with five goals for the Tannadice outfit while also claiming eight assists to push Jackie McNamara’s team to fifth place.

Some of the same at the home of the SPFL champions will be well appreciated by the Celtic faithful.
