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. 

The likes of Callum McGregor, Ismaila Soro, Nir Bitton, Tom Rogic and David Turnbull are all ahead of him in the pecking order.

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.
