"We have got to try and make our stadium a fortress," said the Scot.
"We have to make sure that it is a tough ask for any team that comes down to our stadium.
"I have no doubt the way our fans will be this season in terms of their ferocity, support and passion for our club and the way our stadium is, it will lend itself to noise, like we had last season.
"We will have tough teams coming, top teams coming here and it will be a test for us. But we are relishing that."
