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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
