Birmingham boss McLeish: McFadden now living up to billing

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish is delighted with the form of January signing James McFadden.

McLeish said: "James has certainly taken on the mantle of the price tag, being a Premier League player and being a Scottish international and he knows that comes with the territory now.

"People will be looking up to him and expecting him to do something for the team and he is certainly fulfilling that and not letting anyone down.

"He certainly gave Newcastle a torrid time at the back with his ability and his balance and his goal was the icing on the cake.

"The boy has taken on the mantle of being a top player. James has matured over the last couple of years and he is making the right decisions now."
