Celtic starlet Daniel Arzani has stepped up his return from injury with an impressive performance off the bench in the Hoops academy's 1-1 draw with Hibs.

The Australian youngster showed flashes of quality at Lennoxtown yesterday afternoon.

Arzani, 20, has been out of action for almost a year of his 18-month loan deal from English Premier League giants Manchester City.

The kid suffered a horrific ACL injury in a game against Dundee and has not featured since.

But his bid to return to playing some time soon has been boosted by the 25 minutes he played against Hibs.

Replacing Liam Burt on 64 minutes, Arzani did well to create a chance or two for Armstrong Okoflex and even had a pop at goal himself on a few occasions.
