Kilbirnie’s Dylan Reid says he is flattered with interest from Europe’s top clubs but is happy continuing to make his mark at St Mirren.

The 16-year-old midfielder made history at the start of March when he became not only the youngest player to ever play for St Mirren but also the youngest player to ever feature in the Scottish Premiership.

He gained the records when he came off the bench in the 88th minute during the buddies 3-0 loss to Rangers at Ibrox.

Speaking to the Herald, Reid said:“I hope no one beats the records that’s for sure, but it was brilliant not only for me but my family too.

“For the rest of this season, I just want to get as many games as I can and help the team out to get the highest position we can.”

His debut at such a young age has sparked interest in not only Scotland, with Celtic and Rangers both interested in Reid, but further afield too.

Champions League holders Bayern Munich have been eyeing up the young Scot alongside Portuguese heavyweights Benfica.

Despite the interest from around Europe, Reid says he is just interested in getting more game time in Paisley.

He added: “Well, it is obviously nice to get the recognition, but it does not faze me, I am just focused on playing games at St Mirren and hopefully getting more games. Obviously with the big clubs like Bayern Munich and Benfica it is a great feeling that I have been over there, and they know who I am.

“I want to be ready if I ever get the chance to go over there permanently and have a number of first team games under my belt.”

It has certainly been some journey for the former Garnock Community Campus student who went from local player to St Mirren youth prodigy in a matter of years.

Reid says his time in the area playing for local side Kilbirnie Wasps helped mould him into the player he is now.

He said: “I was at Kilbirnie Wasps which was a team with my friends that one of their dads set up.

“It was just good to get games against older players and it shaped me into the player I am today.”
