â€śI think heâ€™s done himself the world of good with that performance,â€ť said McLeish.
â€śHe could have had a couple of goals. He crashed one off the post in the first-half and his reverse pass for Bowyer was brilliant.
â€śWeâ€™ve trained him for a month now, weâ€™ve given him a pre-season if you like.
â€śWeâ€™ve introduced him gradually because of his late arrival and injury and it looked as if the wee fellaâ€™s got something in his locker, no doubt about it.
â€śHeâ€™s elusive. His passing as well, heâ€™s not too bad. Whether he can take balls in when heâ€™s got close attention from centre-halves, thatâ€™s something weâ€™ve yet to discover.
â€śBut certainly when he gets away from them and opens up the play, heâ€™s very effective.
â€śI think heâ€™s a one fans will take to. The only thing is getting the ball to feet with the big centre-halves coming in at him from behind. Thatâ€™s something he has got to develop in his game. But heâ€™s still young.â€ť
