Kilmarnock make Kerr McInroy their second summer signing

13 June 2022

Kerr McInroy will join Kilmarnock at the end of his contract with Celtic, pending Scottish Football Association approval.

The 21-year-old midfielder has signed a two-year deal and becomes Killie’s second signing of the summer window following the recruitment of Alan Power.

McInroy impressed during loan spells with Airdrieonians and Ayr United during 2021-22 and he told Kilmarnock’s official website: “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 into the squad.”

Boss 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.”
