CELTIC defender Shane Duffy may have only played two games for his new club but he is already making a big impression at both ends of the park.

After marking his debut with a goal and a clean sheet against Ross County at the weekend, the Irish centre-half got on the scoresheet again during his side's 2-1 victory away to St Mirren on Wednesday evening.

Both of the visitors' goals in Paisley were the result of teasing deliveries from Ryan Christie - with on-loan Brighton defender Duffy insisting that as long as the playmaker keeps creating chances, he and his team-mates will finish them off.

"I’m enjoying it again and it’s good to be part of the team again," Duffy told the Celtic website. "I’m still early in my career here and I’m looking forward to playing as many games as I can.

"Hopefully more games will make me feel sharper and bond with the team more. It’s been a good start and the lads have been brilliant with me.

"Ryan’s a real creative player. I was buzzing with his deliveries, which are brilliant for us. He’s a quality player and he shows it training. I’m excited to keep playing with him and hopefully he can put more on my head!

"There’s no target, I’m just taking it game by game and I’ll see how many goals I can get. Hopefully it helps the team, which is the most important thing."

Neil Lennon's side survived an early scare against the Buddies in Paisley when Lee Erwin gave his side the lead within the first few minutes of the contest before the champions rallied to take home the three points.

Duffy says the early goal was "sloppy", and has challenegd himself to raise his standards at Parkhead - starting with a win over Livingston this Saturday to lift Celtic to the top of the Premiership table.

He continued: "We know all these games are important to us. We started sloppy against St Mirren but it was a great reaction and then we controlled the whole game. We also had a penalty miss and a lot of chances.

"I was fuming with myself for the first goal for being sloppy. I wanted to just get back in the lead and that was it.

"My standards are high for myself and I want every pass to be perfect so I was getting frustrated. It will come, but I’m still happy with how it went and those passes will come.

"The Livingston game is big because that’s where we want to be. We know we can go top of the league and push on from there and stay there."
