PLAYING at Celtic Park would be a “dream come true” for Stuart Morrison.

The Pars youngster impressed during the group stage of the Betfred Cup and is eyeing a place in the starting 11 against the Hoops tomorrow.

Euan Murray fell awkwardly against Queen of the South and could be a doubt for the trip to Glasgow.

It opens the door for 20-year-old Morrison to slot into central defence, and he told Press Sport it would be the biggest game of his career.

He said: “It would be amazing to play.

“I’ve only really ever played in front of a few thousand people at most. Parkhead is the biggest stadium in Scotland and Celtic are one of the biggest clubs in world football and they have a massive fanbase.

“It would be a dream come true to play in a stadium like that, especially when it’s packed out and loud.

“If I did get the call on Saturday to play, it’d be an opportunity I’d relish.

“I’ve been to Parkhead a few times just to watch games but I’ve never played there.

“So it would be a proud moment for my family and I if I do end up playing. Hopefully I’ll be in the manager’s thoughts for the game.”

Morrison started three out of the four group stage matches for the Pars before dropping out for Murray, who made his return from injury ahead of the league season commencing.

It’s a start he never envisaged but he feels he’s proved he can compete in the first team and will be ready if he gets the nod to feature in the second round cup clash.

He said: “The gaffer showed faith in me by putting me in against St Mirren and I thought I did well. I really enjoyed playing in that one. I’m grateful I got the chance in those three games so soon in the season.

“I’m at an age now where I need to look like I’m comfortable and can play at first-team level. I believe that I can, I just need to show everyone what I’m capable of.”

And he’s eager to go up against the “best players possible”, and commented that he and his team-mates will be up for the task against Celtic, who will be looking to bounce back after being beaten by Romania’s CFR Cluj in the Champions League group stage qualifiers on Tuesday night.

He said: “You can’t really get a bigger game in Scottish football at the minute.

“Everyone knows that Celtic have won the treble treble.

“Everyone looking in from the outside thinks Celtic is going to win, so there’s absolutely no pressure on us. I think we just need to go and enjoy the experience and make sure we work right from the first whistle to the last.

“We can’t switch off and commit silly fouls. We need to keep our shape as tight as possible and stop Celtic as best we can.

“It’ll be a really good experience and hopefully we can do ourselves justice playing against them.

“You want to test yourself against the best players possible. It’ll be the toughest test of their careers for some of the boys in the changing room going up against Celtic.

“They’ve won the treble treble and put seven past St Johnstone and five past Motherwell.

“We know it’ll be a tough afternoon but it’s a challenge everyone is looking forward to.

“This would be by far the biggest game in my short career so far.

“If selected, I’ll take the occasion in, play the game and forget about everything surrounding it and just focus.

“That’s what we need to do.

“We can’t get caught up in the occasion too much.

“We know it’s going to be a massive ask but you never know what can happen in a game of football.”
