“I'm at the training ground from the back end of 7am and I don't get home until about half-seven at night so I'm doing 12-hour days," said the Scot.
"I'm always first in and last out, so I'm very rarely outside the gates. But that's the way I like it.
“I want us to be on the front foot every time - the intensity is the way I want to play. They're grasping that which is really good."
