Yeah, the fact that he never really made a position or place in the team his own tells you something but I think he's maybe been a victim of circumstance too in some ways in that the overall makeup of our defences over the last two seasons has been a bit of an incoherent mess with no real natural balance in it. It was noticeable in the last two home games there that he would often try to find a teammate with headers from long balls he won etc, and would try to step up and snuff out spaces and even support attacks but with the way Imrie had the defence set deep and tight around Lithgow then that's something that he wasn't really able to do and nor was there a midfield able to come and collect wee knock-downs either. I reckon he'd fare a lot better in a more attacking (for want of a better term) back 3 that plays higher up the pitch with a better, more fluid midfield etc but I guess that's not something you can easily facilitate on our budget. Either way though, there's a decent defender there for somebody and he's been a really likeable player so I wish him well so long as he doesn't play against us.
