Celtic young gun Irvine open to Kilmarnock loan

Celtic's Jackson Irvine has indicated that he would be open to a loan move to Kilmarnock.

The 20-year old Australian midfielder is unlikely to see a regular amount of game time with the Scottish champions this season and is wanted by Killie boss Allan Johnston for a six-month spell.

"Jackson Irvine is definitely one we are interested in but nothing has been sorted out yet," he said.

And Melbourne-born Irvine, who impressed in Celtic's 1-0 friendly win over Liverpool in Dublin on Saturday, admitted it may suit him to go out and get some frequent minutes elsewhere.

"It's a tough decision whether to go on loan or not," he told The Sun. "My priority is to be a Celtic player, this is where I want to be.

"It's going to be very hard to break in there. Going on loan for six months wouldn't do me any harm - it would give me a chance to step up and play regularly."
