The 24-year-old has also performed reasonably well in the league, averaging a 7.06/10 rating and providing one assist from those nine appearances (as per WhoScored).
Certainly, it seems like McAvennie has seen enough from Kenny to convince him that the Bhoys should sign him permanently.
He said: “If he would come to Celtic on a permanent basis, I would be happy with that signing.
“I like him. I think he’s a decent player. The first two or three games he came in, he was getting past the defenders and whipping the ball into the box. As a former striker, I would have [eaten] them up.
“But the strikers at Celtic don’t. Edouard wasn’t getting in there; he likes everything into his feet. So it was hard. Ajeti and Klimala were getting chances but weren’t putting them away. I don’t think they’ve had crosses like that for such a long time, they didn’t know what to do with them.”
Do you want the club to sign Kenny?
Yes, he would be a solid addition
No, we can do better
TIF Thoughts on Kenny…
Until then, it may fall to incoming CEO Dominic McKay to make the big calls over transfers ahead of his arrival to replace Peter Lawwell upstairs at Celtic.
If Kenny is given the chance to join Celtic permanently, though, then we think he should take the chance as he has made a solid start to life in Glasgow.
