Dylan Reid, a St Mirren talent, could make the move to Lowland League following the end of Celtic transfer talks.
Although Reid was being linked to a loan deal with the Scottish Premiership champions, Reid decided to stay with Stephen Robinson and fight for his first-team spot amid late interest from Parkhead. East Kilbride, Lowland League hopefuls, have made an ambitious bid for Reid’s loan. They hope to be promoted to League Two at the conclusion of the campaign after he struggled to play in the first half of the campaign.
The 17-year old was in initial talks with the Hoops earlier this summer, with both clubs continuing discussions throughout the window for the Scotland youth international. Talks stalled at one point, and discussions continued through the summer. However, discussions continued throughout the window over the Scotland youth international.
He could spend a lot of time with Kilby during the campaign to try and secure first team minutes. Kevin Rutkiewicz, Boss of K-Park, is eager to welcome the teen to his team.
Before talks collapsed on deadline day, the talented teenager was strongly linked to a Parkhead move.
Rangers A currently sit second in the table, with only goal difference between the top two. Keith Lasley, chief executive of St Mirren, expressed his desire to see Reid’s progress in Paisley. He stated: “Dylan has been one of many young players at the club that have come through. We want to keep them and develop.”
