Kerr McInroy joins Ayrshire’s Number One

Kilmarnock FC can announce Kerr McInroy will join the club upon the expiration of his contract with Celtic, pending Scottish FA approval.

The 21-year-old midfielder has signed a two-year deal with Killie and becomes our second signing of the summer window.

Kerr makes the move to Ayrshire’s Number One side after impressing during loan spells with Airdrieonians and Ayr United during 2021/22.

After signing his Rugby Park contract, Kerr said: “I’m delighted to be here and buzzing to get the deal done in time for pre-season starting so I’m looking forward to getting going with the boys.

“I wanted to go to a club that wanted me and play at the highest level possible. I spoke to the manager and he really wanted to get me in so that had a big helping hand in my decision.

“I look forward to bedding in as quickly as possible and seeing how I fit in to the squad.”

Derek McInnes said: “Kerr is a player we came up against last season for Ayr and we feel he can give us that nice left sided balance in the middle of the pitch.

“He’s a good age to try and develop to get those improvements from him in our team. We’ve liked what we’ve seen from him and it’s a step up for him to play in the Premiership so we’re pleased to get him on board.”
