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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
