It was a hat-trick of title winning performances for him.

The Northern Ireland worldwide had spent four years at Ibrox, hitting 38 goals and lifting three league titles, and did not disguise his delight at being back in light blue.

"I went to Hearts last season and had a good season and now I have been given a second chance, which I am lucky to have".

"It is hard if a team are relying on one or two players, it has got to be throughout the squad and it is a good place to be".

"I score big goals and I think I have done that my entire career but throughout the whole squad there are goals everywhere and that is the most important thing".
