Dream debut for loanee Scott

Scott McGill may have signed too late to get a proper fanfare on the club website, but he certainly introduced himself in style with a screamer of a goal against Motherwell.

Midfielder McGill joins us on a six-month loan deal from Heart of Midlothian, and his paperwork was completed just in time to take a spot on the bench for Wednesday evening’s Premier Sports Cup derby match.

Introduced as a 65th-minute substitute, 19-year-old Scott watched fellow midfielder Rhys McCabe fire home an outstanding free-kick before getting involved in the goal action himself, rattling home a sensational strike from outside the box on 79 minutes.

Joining training at the Penny Cars Stadium this evening, Scott told “I couldn’t wait to come here after hardly playing last season, so coming here and getting some games under my belt made sense.

“Coming on and scoring was the perfect start, and I can’t wait to be involved again. I don’t know about scoring goals like that every week, but fingers crossed!”

Speaking to DiamondsTV after Wednesday’s match, manager Ian Murray expressed his delight at bringing Scott in.

“I’ve seen a lot of Scott, I watched a lot of Hearts before covid, so I knew what we were getting.

“He’s been in and around the Hearts first-team last season, and he’s a really good player. He wants the ball all the time.

“We’re delighted to have him and he’s going to be a big player for us.”
