Paulo Bernardo has admitted that he is already targeting a League and Scottish Cup double with Celtic this season.

The on-loan Benfica made his first Premiership start in the 0-0 draw with His at Easter Road at the weekend following an impressive 83 minute run-out against Atletico Madrid in the 2-2 Champions League stalemate at Parkhead last midweek.

A hamstring injury to Reo Hatate which has ruled the Japanese playmaker out until after Christmas has given the Portuguese under 21 international an unexpected but welcome opportunity in Brendan Rodgers first team.

Bernardo revealed that he wants to feature more in the side and make the most of his chance.

He insists that he has settled well in Glasgow and it determined to deliver silverware in the form of a domestic double come May.

Bernardo said: "I am feeling really good and confident. I like the way the coach thinks about the team and how to play the game and I feel comfortable with his tactics.

"We are professional players and it is our job to make an impact. I would like to play more, and I hope we get our chances in Europe and win the championship (Premiership) and the cup."
