Ex-Scotland boss Burley impressed by Inverness' Tade

Former Scotland manager George Burley believes Inverness Caledonian Thistle striker Gregory Tade can be big hit in the Scottish Premier League.

The 25-year old Frenchman has scored three goals in his past five league games for Caley and has left Burley to speak very highly of the ex-Raith Rovers striker.

Caley boss Terry Butcher, Burley's former Scotland assistant, said that Tade had received praise from the former Ipswich Town great.

"George came along as he is father-in-law to our Chris Hogg but he left raving about Tade's potential," Butcher said.

"George liked him very much and he's not someone to give praise lightly.

"Gregory can take that as a real compliment. People are beginning to pay attention to him.

"He has hit his stride and impressed me greatly, particularly in the last few weeks, since joining us from Raith Rovers.

"He is beginning to make his mark and puts in a tremendous shift every single game.

"He can make life extremely uncomfortable for any defender and gave Celtic one or two problems late last month.

"It's a real jump from the First Division to the SPL but Gregory has worked hard, shown good attitude and settled in nicely.

"As long as he keeps making chances and getting into those great positions, as he's done in recent matches, I'll be very pleased."
