LARNE’S Jonny Steele is three games into the MLS season with New York Red Bulls, who are still searching for their first win of the campaign.

Last month Steele joined the Big Apple outfit, linking up with ex-Arsenal star Thierry Henry and former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill.

The former Real Salt Lake man was a second-half substitute in the Red Bulls’ opening match - a 3-3 draw away to Portland Timbers at a sold out JELD-WEN Field on March 3.

He started his first match for his new club when he faced San Jose Earthquakes - a game they lost 2-1. Steele got 69 minutes before being replaced by Ruben Bover.

He took his place in the starting 11 again in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home to D.C. United in front of a 22,000-strong crowd.

This weekend the Red Bulls have a trip to Montreal, before hosting Philadelphia Union at the end of March.
