Kerr McInroy believes he’s entering his final few months as a Celtic player, telling the Daily Record he expects to leave the Scottish Premiership giants in 2022.
Since taking over at Parkhead a few months ago, Ange Postecoglou – whether out of necessity or desire – has shown age is just a number in his eyes.
While injuries and transfer struggles admittedly forced his hand, the likes of Stephen Welsh, Adam Montgomery and Dane Murray have been handed first-team roles at one of the biggest clubs in Britain.
But unfortunately for McInroy, a Glasgow-born 21-year-old who has captained the Hoops at youth level, if there’s one position Celtic are particularly well-stocked in its central midfield.
And with his contract expiring in July, McInroy has come to the conclusion he’s unlikely to wear that iconic green-and-white kit again.
Is Kerr McInroy on his way out of Celtic?
“It’s a difficult one for myself,” said McInroy, who recently joined League One Airdrie on loan. “I want to play as many games as I can and show people what I can do. I want to grab a few goals.
“It’s a confusing situation for me. My head has been all over the place trying to work things out. So for now it’s just a case of getting games.
“I have an option of another year at Celtic but this will probably be my last year at (the club). I need to get as many games as I can, wherever that may be.
“I need to get my name back out there and getting appearances and goals under my belt should hopefully show people what I can do.
“Last season was full of ups and downs. I was trying to impress Celtic last season. Now I’m trying to impress for myself.”
McInroy suffered a cruciate ligament injury when on the verge of forcing his way into the first-team picture in 2019, spending almost a year on the sidelines.
