McInroy has been training with the Celtic first-team so far this campaign and featured in some pre-season matches. But the decision has been taken for him to return closer to home and get regular senior minutes.

.The youngster made a great impression on his Pars debut in friendly action. Just hours after signing for Stevie Crawford’s side, McInroy scored a double from the bench as Dunfermline beat Lowland League Spartans 3-0.

Coming into this season off the back of a terrible ACL injury, it’s a big campaign ahead for the Celtic prospect. He is buzzing to get started, opening up on his battles with injury last term.

“I am looking forward to getting started because I need to come out and get games,” he said (Dunfermline FC). “I spoke to Celtic and they thought that Dunfermline would be the best thing for me. As soon as I heard that Dunfermline were interested in me I knew that this was where I wanted to come and that it would be the right place for me.

“I am local, grew up in Dunfermline and stay just ten minutes away from the ground. I used to come to games here with my Granda when I was younger. I know what Dunfermline is all about as a club. I had a season ticket at one time and came to the games quite a lot.

“I just had to stay focused, there were some tough days that I just had to push through. Celtic as a club and their physios looked after me. I had a footballing friend who had the same injury so we went through it at the same time.

“I am back fully fit and raring to go. When I came back from injury I felt better than ever.”
