The former Hibs full-back put in a man-of-the-match display on his return to the Premiership and told the Daily Record: "It's great to be back in the Premiership. It's where I want to play and I'm delighted to have joined Birmingham.
"It was good to get the first game under my belt and there is a lot more to come from me before the end of the season.
"I haven't played for five weeks so I was quite pleased with my fitness but disappointed we couldn't get the points.
"It feels more like a defeat after conceding such a late goal.
"We're under pressure after dropping into the bottom three but we'll keep training hard and hopefully our luck will change."
