It is unclear whether Kerr decided to select Celtic due to any particular affinity or whether he saw them as a decent away crowd. Kerr is an honest pro that always gives his all, he is a Dundee lad and he will be keen that his career continues beyond his testimonial.
Celtic first-team quartet Mikey Johnston, Marco Tilio, Kwon and Yuki Kobayashi were named in the Celtic XI that faced Ayr United for Michael Moffat’s Testimonial at the weekend and you would imagine that a couple fringe players would get the chance to run out, especially given that it is during the international break. Brendan Rodgers will likely not be in-charge and it will most probably be a Celtic B Team but there could be a number of players coming back from injury that could use the game for fitness.
