“I felt settled a few months after I came here and when I started playing I felt right at home, so coming back here is like coming back home again.

“I’m looking forward to the games coming up. We’ve got Hearts in the first game of the season and we scored quite a few against them last season so that should be interesting.

“We’ve also got the Champions League qualifiers so that should be good too and every game should be enjoyable.

“I’ve never been to Slovenia but it should be good. We’ve got four games out there and they should put us in good stead.”
