The highly-sought after Highlanders striker claims a move away from Inverness is the furthest thing from his mind in the midst of a successful season which has seen John Hughes' men climb to second in the Scottish Premiership.

McKay, who struck 27 times last season, has already netted 15 goals in 18 games this term, including a brace against Hearts last weekend and still has three matches left to play in the calendar year.

Despite the headlines linking the 25-year-old striker with a move away from Inverness, the player insists he will remain loyal to the club.

"I still have 18 months left on the contract I signed here," McKay told the Daily Record.

"I am happy at Caley Thistle. Who knows who is out there watching? You never know what can happen in the future.

"But given just how content I am at this club it would be a very hard decision to leave. I'm loving playing every week with this group of lads.

"Once you start dwelling on your future it can affect performances. I am just going to carry on doing what I'm doing and try to score goals for Inverness."

Inverness are seven points behind league leaders Celtic but after a fourth-placed finish last term, McKay believes the entire squad has developed.

The Northern Ireland international is focussed on advancing his performances and believes he is in the right place to do so with the assistance provided by his teammates.

"It was always my aim to go out and try to repeat what I did last season," he added. "I do feel I've picked up from last year and all the lads have been the same.

"The team, as a whole, has possibly been even better. We have progressed. It helped in the summer when we kept most of this squad together.

"I'm confident whoever is in the team each week will create chances for me. I just try to get myself into the box to get on the end of those crosses."
