Celtic skipper Paul McStay is expecting to be back to full fitness in time for the new season.

The 31-year-old midfielder is recovering from an ankle operation which forced him to pull out of Euro 96.

But he said: "The surgeon was delighted with the operation and I should be back for the start.

"It's an important time for us as we're desperate to win the league."

Meanwhile, Celts keeper Gordon Marshall is banking on Premiership No.1's Peter Schmeichel and David James to help him beat last season's total of 23 clean sheets.

Marsh, who signed a two year contract on Thursday, said: "I like to watch them on telly and maybe pick up a tip or two.

"I want to improve on 23 this season and have a winner's medal too."
