Airdrie United striker Ryan Donnelly says he would prefer to play in England than for one of the Old Firm clubs in Scotland.

The 20-year old is attracting some attention after scoring 24 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions for the Second Division club and although he admits is a big Celtic fan, he would rather move on to a club in England if any came sniffing around.

"I'm a Celtic fan and used to go to some of their games," he told the Daily Record. "Obviously it's great to hear my name linked with them.

"But if I had the choice of going to Celtic or to a club in England, I'd want England. A lot of young Scottish boys are thinking that way now.

"It's a better standard of football down there. I wouldn't turn Celtic or Rangers down if they were the only clubs watching me but England is where I want to play.

"I'm not desperate to leave Airdrie but I am desperate to get full-time football, which would allow me to give up my job."
