“It is a tough place to start last Sunday, no matter who you are. We were the underdogs, the pressure was on Celtic. I thought we performed well in parts of the game.

“Obviously going into Saturday, it is going to be a different kind of game. The expectation will be on us to win and that’s what we are looking to do.

“I wouldn’t judge the team on one game. There are a lot of new players gelling together. I think the team are in a good place at the minute and three points are the main thing this weekend.

“When my agent said Aberdeen there was only one choice and I wanted to go right away. The appeal was playing in a good league, in front of good crowds, in good stadiums, against good teams – it is a great platform to express myself and show what I can do.

“I like getting on the ball, I like running at players, going one-v-one, scoring goals, creating goals and stuff like that. I want to play as many games as I can, score as many goals, create as many goals as I can.

“Obviously statistics now are a big factor in an attacker’s game so I want to get my stats as high as I can. You have to be aware of stats. If you are a winger who doesn’t score many or create much you’ve not really have a chance of playing at the highest level you can.

“It has grown into the game more over the years but I always wanted to create as much as I can and score goals.

“So I need to score and I need to assist.”
