On loan Celt McInroy won’t rule out Airdrie return


Airdrie fan favourite Kerr Mcinroy has a huge decision to make on his future this week and the on loan Celtic midfielder hasn’t ruled out a return to the Diamonds.

The 21-year-old has been outstandin­g during a six-month loan from the Parkhead club, scoring four times, and admits he has been enjoying his football.

But with his Hoops contract expiring in the summer and the midfielder not expecting a renewal, Mcinroy has to make a big decision on what his next step is after returning to Celtic on Monday.

He said: “I’m back in at Celtic now. I don’t know where I’m going to be next, to be honest, but I could eventually end up coming back here – you never know.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time here, I’ve loved every second of it.

“I scored a few goals and really enjoyed my football, so I’m going back in to sort out what’s happening, but I would never close the door on here, because I’ve loved every minute of it.

“The most important thing about being here is enjoying it, I’m playing well and scoring a few goals and the team is winning, which obviously helps, so I’ve been buzzing with it all.”

Mcinroy’s last game of the loan spell was in Saturday’s 3-0 win at home to East Fife, with goals from Jordan Allan, Adam Frizzell and Dylan Easton in a first-half master-class, and he enjoyed it.

He said: “I thought we started the game well and got the early goal, which makes a difference.

“We knocked the ball about, everyone was enjoying it, and it was really comfortabl­e for us, especially in the first half.

“They probably had a couple of chances through our sloppiness, but we were well in control and the goals showed it.

“We probably could have gone on to score a couple more, but we did well. We’re playing some good stuff at the moment and that’s four wins in a row, especially in this league, which is hard to do, and it’s brilliant.

“All the boys are buzzing, everyone gets on really well with each other, and everyone kind of bounces off each other, and you can see that on the pitch as well.”

Assistant boss Scott Agnew, who stepped in for Ian Murray as he self-isolates following a positive Covid test, said: “I would love to get Kerr back.

“Kerr is a fantastic boy, first and foremost, and a fantastic player.

“He’s going back in to Celtic, we’ll keep in touch both with him and Celtic, and see what we can do.”
