Davidson gets his man with loan Celtic arriving

Callum Davidson is delighted to have Mackenzie Carse on loan at Queens Park until the end of the season.

The midfielder has been captaining the Celtic B team in the Lowland League but in his third season playing at that level the time has come to step up a few levels with The Championship a much more demanding environment.

Back-to-back wins over Dunfermline and Raith Rovers has lifted the Spiders away from bottom spot but a lot of work needs to be done to repeat last season’s achievement of reaching the Play Off.

Davidson has only had one match in charge of the club but is looking to strengthen the squad that he inherited, telling the Queens Park website:

In terms of building the squad this January a lot has been said about bringing in experience. We have done that with Sean Welsh and are still looking to add a couple of more players who fall into that category, however bringing Mackenzie in ensures that we keep the blend between high potential young players and experience right.

He is a player that has shown in his displays for Celtic B this season that he is ready to compete for a first team jersey at a high level. He will get that opportunity to compete here and if he takes it the next opportunity for him will be to show that he can play at this level every week.

With fellow Celt Ben McPherson starting 12 and making five appearances off the bench in The Championship both Carse and Celtic know the demands of playing in the second tier.

First up for the new signing is Saturday’s match away to Dunfermline, a rearranged fixture since both clubs were knocked out of the Scottish Cup.

It will be quite a step up from Carse’s recent experiences against Gretna 2008 and Edinburgh University.

Having a Glasgow club in the second tier with top class facilities should provide Celtic with a great platform to develop younger players, if McPherson and Carse can make a success of it there is every chance that other players will make the temporary move to Hampden next season.
