Ayr United have produced their own unique angle footage of Celtic loanee Kerr McInroy’s first goal for the club on Friday night.

McInroy is currently with the Honest Men in a loan deal until the end of the season. He’s been making a decent first impression too, starting in 6 of their 7 Championship matches since his arrival. With 2 assists to his name before Friday night, it’s fair to say things are going well.

Granted, it was mixed emotions for McInroy in Ayr’s latest clash. a 3-1 home Ayrshire derby defeat to Kilmarnock wasn’t what the player or his club were after. With the game being screened live on BBC Scotland too, the result will be a painful one for the Honest Men. But even so, Ayr have provided some unique angle footage on Twitter of McInroy’s first goal, as they lauded the strike on social media:

The result marks McInroy’s 3rd defeat in 7 games since his January arrival. The result leaves Ayr 7th, 11 points behind the promotion playoff positions.

The spell with the second-tier club comes after he shone in League One during the first half of the season with Airdrieonians. McInroy will see this move as a natural step in his progression, and it looks as though he’s taken it in his stride so far.

McInroy is into the final year of his Celtic contract. Despite having an option of another year-long extension, the midfielder has previously admitted that he expects this to be his final season as a Celtic player [Scottish Sun].

Kerr McInroy doing all he can to impress away from Celtic

McInroy did have a season out on loan with Dunfermline Athletic last season. However, this year he’s making more of a splash with his spells with Airdrie and Ayr respectively.

It’s become clear that his goal of gaining regular football elsewhere has proven to be the correct division. All of a sudden, McInroy is one of the hottest prospects going in the lower divisions. If he does make the decision to leave Celtic permanently this summer, then he’ll easily be snapped up in the Championship at least.

Promotion to the Premiership this year looks like a touch too early given Ayr’s current position. However, McInroy won’t be far off competing in the top league given his current form and status. A good run between now and the summer could even have lower-half Prem teams taking a look at him.

His time at Celtic from the outside does look as though it’s coming to an end. But then again, given the season he’s having, it may be worth extending his contract for another year and seeing how he pushes on from there.

After all, McInroy is still only 21. Injury problems have held him back in recent years, but we could be about to see the best of him in the coming years.

It’ll be interesting to see whether Celtic see this as a player worth hanging onto in the meantime.
