“It was a massive honour for me to get the armband in the second game when I was away with Scotland. It was just an incredible experience to lead the boys out in that stadium.

“It was a massive confidence boast that both my club manager and international manager handed me the captains armband last season. For them to do that with me at such a young age meant a lot to me.

“Mexico were a very good team as they have shown in the World Cup. The way they move the ball, how sharp they are. They have some real quality in that team so it was great test for me playing opposition as good as that.

“If I had to pick a team I wanted to win the World Cup then it would be Mexico, just because of the fact we played against them recently. It is hard to say who impressed me most because if I am being honest I did not see any of their names!! They were that quick and sharp. I did not manage to catch my breath and see who I was playing against!

“I had enough time off during the summer and could not wait to get back.

“Pre-season is always going to be hard. There is always going to be a lot of running. This year over in Ireland the heat has been unexpected so it has made it even tougher. We might as well enjoy the weather and not complain about it!

“I just want to have another good season personally and as a team we want to do better in the cups. We got to one semi final last year but I would love to be involved in a cup final. We want to get some silverware this season.

“Mikey (Devlin) and I have got on very well since he came into the club. He sat next to me in the changing room and straight away we became good mates. Hopefully that will help and show with our performances together on the pitch.

“We both want to see each other do as well as we can and if we play together hopefully we can push each other on.

“If I had to pick a favourite moment last season, it was actually not a game I was involved in.

“But it was great to see the boys winning at Celtic Park and claiming second spot. That was a brilliant moment for me and everyone connected with the club.

“Although I was not involved it still meant a lot to me to finish second and finish above all the teams that were round about us in the league going into the post-split fixtures.

“If I had to pick a personal highlight, then it would have to be THAT goal. My strike against Kilmarnock.

“Burnley will be a difficult game, but it is one that we are all looking forward to. They done well in the English Premier League last season and we just need to go and challenge ourselves against them. we need to play as well as we can and make it difficult for them and you never know what can happen.”
