Manager Ally McCoist couldn’t be more pleased with Lewis Macleod’s efforts in pre season and our on our tour of North America.

The 20 year old has been a shining light in a dullsome pre season campaign – last two games aside results wise – and he’s certainly determined to make up for lost time having gone down ill in January and having last season cut short for him.

Speaking to the Official Site the gaffer explained.

‘His confidence is rising and it’s like having a new player in many ways. Lewis has had a seriously tough time of it this year with the medical condition he had. That was very difficult for him, and seeing the boys coming in to train each day, especially for a young lad, is soul destroying. Lewis handed the situation very well and he has come back looking very strong and he has worked hard in pre season.’

McCoist goes on to say that obviously he doesn’t want to heap pressure on him, but if he can consistently perform like he did against Ottawa Fury then he’ll be very happy with him indeed.

Could be a big year for him now, especially if he can continue to develop and improve and play good parts in our games.
