“Manchester City at home is probably the best that I've ever felt on a football pitch in my life!”the Scotland international explained.
“The feeling that you experience there, the rush of emotions going through the whole stadium, was incredible. For me, being injured for two months or three months, it was massive, that. To come back into the team and obviously try and help the boys from not starting the game, and showing the manager that you're not sulking and that you're ready to come on whenever you're needed, is so important for myself.”
“The sacrifices that I went through from being injured were massive,”said the Reds' no.39.
“You dedicate your whole life to coming back and being fit and sharp and ready, and almost like [a] you've never been missed sort of thing.”

“There's a big list of feelings that I've been proud [of] after games,”he noted.
“Obviously making your debut, scoring your first goal – those feelings of achieving something like that is so important for a young kid who's come through the Academy, as well.
“Hopefully there's many more to come and plenty of achievements that you do relish and are very, very proud of.”
