Airdrie young gun Donnelly prefers England move over Old Firm

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."
