CHARLY MUSONDA is aiming for silverware during his 18-month loan spell at Celtic.

The midfield playmaker, who made the switch from Chelsea to the Scottish champions in January, has never won a trophy in his career.

Musonda is eager for another taste of Scottish Cup action when Morton provide the opposition in the quarter-final clash at Parkhead on Saturday.

The Belgian ace was involved in the previous tie when James Forrest fired in a glorious hat-trick in the 3-2 triumph over Partick Thistle in the east end of Glasgow.

He said: “It would be unbelievable to win my first trophy at Celtic. That’s why I’m here.

“This is a club that constantly deals with the pressure to win trophies. To be a part of that would be fantastic. It would be an amazing experience, especially at a young age.

“You want to be able to be part of a winning team and to be 21 years old and have the chance to win trophies is an exciting position to be in.

“Hopefully, we can win trophies this year. I’d be very happy to achieve that and I’ll be very proud to be part of a club that wins trophies.”

Musonda added: “The challenge here is tough and unique because every team sets up to try and stop you.

“That’s not an easy thing, whereas in European games it’s more open and teams don’t really come out to try and stop us.

“There’s no doubt it’s a good learning curve for me. It’s a physical game here, but it’s also physical in England so I’m used to that.

“I enjoy this challenge, though, to try and break down teams who set up to block us and stop us from winning.

“In the domestic games, we know we have to be more patient, unless you manage to get an early lead.”
