Cammy Mackay admits he could face a big decision on his future this summer.
The Caley Thistle goalkeeper, with a decade of reliable service behind him, has never hidden his desire to become number one choice at the club.
Understudy to Ryan Esson, Tony Reguero, Dean Brill, Owain Fon Williams and Mark Ridgers since signing senior terms in 2013, the local lad – 27 this month – remains relatively young in goalkeeping years.
With his current contract set to expire in May, though, Mackay is keeping an open mind on his future.
“This will be my 10th year with Caley Thistle,” he said.
“I’m still young in goalkeeping terms, but I do want to start playing games. I’ve spent a lot of time sitting around watching games.
“I need to wait and see what the plans are. There is a lot to think about between now and then.
“A lot can change. I’ll wait and see how the rest of the season plays out.
“There are good people around the club, and even people who were here before, that I can turn to for advice like Fonners and Deano. I need to see how the rest of the season goes for myself, personally, before I make any decisions for the future.”
Mackay marked his 37th start for the team with a clean sheet and good performance in the Scottish Cup victory at home to Cowdenbeath.
“I feel over the last couple of seasons, when I have got game time, I haven’t done too much wrong – its important to work hard so you’re ready,” he said.
For the goalkeepers, life under new manager Duncan Ferguson has meant closer involvement in outfield players’ drills with ball at feet – something he enjoys.
Looking to Raith’s visit, Mackay added: “They’re in a good run of form, but so are we. These are the type of games now where, if we’re looking to climb the league, we need to get results to sustain the push.”
