Lee O’Connor says he’s loving his time at Partick Thistle right now following his move from Celtic in the winter window.

The right-back had joined the Hoops in the summer from Manchester United. Celtic have since opted to send O’Connor to Firhill, where he will gain needed first-team experience.

He’s featured twice so far, firstly in a disappointing defeat to Arbroath before a 1-1 draw with Ayr United most recently.

Not taking three points from the Honest Men clash was a disappointment but overall the Hoops loanee is still enjoying his time with Ian McCall’s men.

“It’s not a bad result but I think we deserved all three points,” said O’Connor. “Everyone has been great. I feel comfortable.

“I’m enjoying my football. The gaffer, the changing room, the whole club, they’ve welcomed me with open arms.

“I’m enjoying it. I think everything has been great. I feel I’m up to speed so hopefully I can kick on.”
