A- “It has been incredible and a real privilege to have represented some massive clubs in the UK and India.”

A – “I definitely do, the older I get the more I’m trying to pass on my experience and knowledge to younger players in the squad, which is every player as I’m easily the oldest!”

Q- You spent a good few years in India before returning to Scotland. How was that experience and what is the standard like compared to here?

A – “It was an incredible life and football experience that I wouldn’t change for anything! The quality of family time we got was second to none. Football wise it was a lot slower and more tactical because of the heat and humidity.”

Q – How did it feel scoring the winner against Hamilton? Is that the sort of game/result you feel the void of no fans?

A – “It’s still a great feeling to score the winning goal in any game! Obviously without fans there it takes a wee bit away in moments like that but overall it’s just good to be able to play football at all at the moment.”

Q- Stranraer have made a mixed start to the League Two campaign. What’s the targets for the team and you personally this season?

A – “We would like to get to the play offs and if we keep our work ethic and quality from the last few games we’ll have a good chance of achieving that. I never set individual targets so if I can help the young strikers to improve and score goals and chip in with a few myself I’ll be quite happy.”

Q- You are now 36. Have you started thinking beyond football? Would you like to get into management?

A – “Yeah I’d love to be a manger one day and I’ve started doing my coaching badges. Failing that I’d love to stay in the game in some other role, commentary, punditry, scouting..anything along those lines.”
