“It wasn’t the greatest of circumstances to come back into, two nil down at Tynecastle at half time, but it was great just to get back onto a football field again.

“I’d started training again at the start of last week and I can’t thank the physios enough for getting me back in as quick as time as possible. It’s just lucky we didn’t have to go down certain avenues with the injury, but as I say I can’t thank them enough for how quickly they managed to get me back on the pitch.

“I thought I did quite well in the St Mirren game out there in the cup and the manager played me in that number 10 position, which I love playing. Then on the Tuesday at training I picked up an injury, but the physios and the boys who were injured like Mark Reynolds, who still has a long way to go, kept my head right and I’ve got a good support network around me that managed to keep me positive and keep me on the straight and narrow and it’s just about coming in and working hard, doing my rehab and getting back fit as quick as I can.

“I would try and stay positive and would class myself as a positive guy. These things are there to test us and it was there to test me and hopefully I can come back bigger, faster and stronger and I can use that as an experience and push on during the rest of the season.

“It’s always a big occasion at Hampden never mind who you’re playing, and it just makes it that bit bigger that we’re playing Rangers. We can’t get too carried away and get caught up in the hype. That’s when you’ll try and play a different game. We showed in the second half on Saturday that we can play football and move the ball about and hopefully we can do that at the weekend.

“We can’t get carried away and if we play to our own game I am confident we can get the result we all want. I’m pretty sure the other lads in the changing room will feel that as well.

“It’s been quite a famous thing here under the manager that when we get a few draws or losses we then go on a winning streak and there’s no reason why we can’t do that and hopefully we can start on Sunday.”
