Dundee United defender Callum Morris has declared himself fit for the Scottish League Cup final.

The centre-back, 25, has not played since 14 February but is back in full training following a thigh injury.

"I have been focused on getting fit and being ready to throw my hat in the ring to try and get a place in the starting XI," he said.

"It has all gone smoothly, so hopefully I will be ready. I have done a lot of fitness work behind the scenes."

United face Celtic in the Hampden final on Sunday.

Morris scored in the semi-final win over Aberdeen - a week after returning from a similar lay-off.

But Sean Dillon, Ryan McGowan, Jaroslaw Fojut and Paul Dixon formed the defence as United drew 1-1 in their Scottish Cup quarter-final against Celtic on Sunday.

"The back four played really well on Sunday, so I will just have to go into training and stake a claim and prove to the manager that I'm ready to go," added Morris.

"Physically, I feel good and I am confident of what I can do on the pitch."
