won 5-1 against Dundee United on Wednesday and


is trying to empower their team for the push.

“We are working hard on a couple at the moment,”



“I think we need a left-sided defender, there is no getting away from that, the back four is full of right-footers.

“And if we can get another attacking one, then brilliant.

“Sam is 34 now, he’s got a wife and a few young kids who are depending on him.

“I had a good, frank conversation with him about next year, I told him there wasn’t going to be an offer from ourselves and that I wouldn’t stand in his way if he had the opportunity to go elsewhere and win a contract.

“Sam was outstanding for us last season. This season he didn’t start as well as we would have liked and that’s why he came out of the team.

“We are a club that likes to promote from the academy and we need to make sure that pathway is clear.

“Some of the younger ones have got in, the likes of Ethan, and Cammy MacPherson has been in and out. And we have a young boy in the academy, Dylan Reid, who has been up training with us from time to time and he is one we are really excited about.

“I just feel if I hang on to too may experienced players then it blocks that pathway for some of the younger ones."
