Dylan McGeouch: Pointing to a Celtic future

Scotland Under 21 international McGeouch has been on loan at Coventry since January, but has made just six substitute appearances.

Fellow 21-year-old Irvine has fared better on loan at Kilmarnock, featuring 25 times, and both hope to have a future in Neil Lennon's plans when they return to Celtic.

McGeouch told the Daily Record: "I'll go back to Celtic in the summer and sort out what I'm going to do next.

"They've been a bit busy winning championships, which is great for everybody."

Irvine feels playing at Kilmarnock has improved him, saying: "It's been a good experience, it's really helped me grow as a player. Playing in 25 games or so is definitely more than I was going to get at Celtic.

"We're in a bit of a dogfight for that second bottom play-off position, so the pressure's even higher."

Irvine is targeting first-team football at Parkhead next term, commenting: "I'd find it hard to sit in the reserves after the season I've had."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
