Liam Scales had a bit of a mixed time after joining Celtic last summer.
It was expected that the former Shamrock Rovers man would take some time to adjust to his new team. That proved to be the case, with the defender being used sparingly in the first half of the season.
He would not make his league debut until December, although it soon looked as though he was becoming a more integral part of the squad. Scales started four league games across the months of December and January and put in some impressive displays.

However, they would prove to be his final league appearances of the campaign. The Irishman was left on the bench for a number of games, while he was not even making matchday squads at the end of the season.
While he has only been at Celtic for less than a year, his time at the club could already be coming to an end.
Liam Scales linked with Aberdeen move
The Scottish Sun are reporting that Aberdeen are interested in signing Liam Scales this summer, with the possibility of a loan move or permanent transfer being explored.
It is believed that their manager Jim Goodwin is keen to sign his fellow countryman, with his squad badly in need of a left-sided centre back during this window.
Goodwin is keen on a permanent deal for the player, although an initial loan move may seem more likely. As for Scales, he will be looking to play more first team football next season. Scales has three years left on this contract.
The 23-year old has been included in Stephen Kenny's Ireland squad on a couple of occasions, although he is currently well down the pecking order in comparison to other centre back options. That is unlikely to change if he remains at Celtic.
This is certainly one to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
