Dundee United's loan signing Milos Lacny is aiming to prove Celtic were wrong not to offer him a contract last summer.

The Slovakian striker had a trial with the Bhoys and he was convinced manager Neil Lennon would keep him on.

Lacny is now in the SPL after joining the Tangerines on a 12-month loan deal from Czech side Sparta Prague.

The 23-year-old is focused on doing his best under manager Peter Houston, starting with Sunday's trip to Rangers.

Certain

"When I was on trial with Celtic I was 100 per cent certain I would be offered a contract," explained Lacny.

"It was enjoyable and I did well but at the end of the day things did not happen.

"I know they have good strikers at Celtic but I would have felt confident competing with them. But it didn't happen so I moved on and am glad to be with United.

"Now I want to use my time here to show Celtic they missed out by not signing me. And it would be good to get a goal against Rangers to prove that.

"That is a big game and to play at somewhere like Ibrox will be a good experience. Hopefully we will get a good result."

Offers

Lacny claims other clubs were interested in his signature, but he is pleased to be at Tannadice.

"I am pleased to be here. I enjoyed being on trial and wanted to sign," he continued.

"There were other options at other clubs but I thought this was the best move for me at this time in my career.

"I wanted to come to Britain to experience playing in a foreign country."
