Another Celtic player has been allowed to leave the club on loan as the Hoops continue to shake up their squad ahead of their 10IAR challenge.
Celtic have done some impressive business on both sides when it comes to their transfers. The club have managed to bring in the likes of Shane Duffy, Vasilis Barkas, Albian Ajeti and David Turnbull while also extending the loan stay of Mohamed Elyounoussi for another season. On the other hand, they have managed to let go of players who had no immediate future at Parkhead, both on loan as well as.
As a result, the likes of Jonny Hayes, Jozo Simunovic, Eboue Kouassi and Craig Gordon no longer find themselves at Celtic. While players like Jack Hendry, Vakoun Issouf Bayo, Boli Bolingoli, Marian Shved among many others find themselves away on loan. And now, Kerr McInroy will be joining that list as he moves on Dunfermline on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old has been out for almost 10 months due to a torn cruciate ligament injury. And although he was training with the Celtic first-team, he believes that the loan move will be the best thing for him at this stage of his career.
As reported by The Courier, McInroy said:
“I am looking forward to getting started because I need to come out and get games. I spoke to Celtic and they thought that Dunfermline would be the best thing for me.
“As soon as I heard that Dunfermline were interested in me I knew that this was where I wanted to come and that it would be the right place for me.”
There is no denying the fact that McInroy would have struggled for minutes if he had stayed on at Celtic. Of course, he would have played the odd cup tie here and there but overall, it probably would not have been the best thing for his development.
Thus, this is a win-win situation for all parties involved. McInroy gets to play. Dunfermline are potentially getting a great player. And Celtic will know what they have in the 20-year-old and whether he will ever be good enough for the first-team.
