DAVIS KEILLOR-DUNN is more than happy with his choice to swap visiting Celtic Park for a trip to Hayes Lane.

Keillor-Dunn has nearly 30 Scottish Premiership appearances under his belt with Ross County, running out at Celtic Park and Ibrox Stadium during his time north of the border.

But Keillor-Dunn found game time hard to come by at the Staggies after a fine breakthrough season, spending part of the 2018/19 campaign on-loan at Falkirk in the Scottish Championship.

And when Keillor-Dunn was told that he was free to find a new home at the start of the 2019/20 campaign, the 22-year-old left Ross County by mutual consent despite having a year left on his contract.

Keillor-Dunn had to wait four months to be picked up by Wrexham, making six appearances, including a hat-trick of starts, before the coronavirus crisis called time on the season with nine games remaining.

Instead of playing against Celtic and Rangers, Keillor-Dunn was running out at Bromley, Yeovil and Harrogate - although the attacking midfielder was more than comfortable with where his career had taken him.

“Playing football down south means people are watching you,” said Keillor-Dunn.

“The National League is a good league and one Wrexham will hopefully be able to get out of and back in the Football League.

“Playing in Scotland, it’s difficult to gauge what level you are playing at. You’ve got your big teams like Celtic and Rangers, but then there are smaller clubs who might be more of a League One/League Two kind of level.

“It’s a crazy league and a great league to play in with the one benefit being you get to play against the likes of Celtic and Rangers at massive, massive stadiums.

“But in the National League there are some very, very good players.”

After three cameos off the bench - and a watching brief at Chesterfield - Keillor-Dunn made three successive starts for Wrexham, scoring in the 2-0 success at Bromley.

Sunderland-born Keillor-Dunn was relishing the challenge of getting to grips with the unique style of the National League when the season was ended.

“It’s about finding that balance in the National League,” he said. “You need to be physically ready and fit to play and then your ability can come through. You won’t be able to show off your ability without the aggression and being ready to compete and stand up for yourself.

“We’ve played some very good clubs, though and you can see that there are plenty of players capable of playing higher up.”

Former Wrexham loan man, Ollie Shenton, meanwhile, has signed for Chorley after leaving Stoke City.

Shenton, who made 17 appearances for the Reds in the 2016/17 season, said: “I wanted to come to a club that would offer regular football and had ambitions to push on and challenge for promotion, and Chorley are definitely in that category.”
