First time seeing Gray last night and I have to say, it looks like we've signed a very decent right back! His touch and control was sublime, aswel as his willingness to surge forward. Dare I say it...he was almost Murphy like!

Very impressed. Hopefully he keeps that kind of performance up all season, that's the key.

Yip, and that is why I would like us to get an out and out LB. Not a LB come
left winger or LB come CH. Makes all the difference.

And before anyone starts I thought Stevenson done well last night.

He was very good last night but I'd hardly go as far as sublime. My one concern is that he will collect a lot of bookings ver the season, unless he dampens his enthusiasm, so AS may need cover.

We won't though, we have Stevenson, Booth and the young lad Dunsmore who can play LB. If Stubbs is looking to add to the squad left back won't be an area he will look at I reckon.

Was a decent debut, hopefully stubbs can squeeze more out of him.

stopped us having a home grown back 4 though.

He looked the part, and did seem to work well with Harris. Both looked comfortable working together and playing each other in behind the rangers defenders.

At last a right back it seems. :top marks

Certainly the full backs are very important in the system AS is playing and thought both did well.

Hopefully he stays fit and we get a good consistent season out of him.

I loved the way he played, however I'm concerned with him bombing forward as much as he did as Harris isn't an ideal candidate to "sit and cover" for him when he does.

PS I think Lewis was one of the few players who managed to beat a man several times last night. How anyone can still criticise him is beyond belief.

I think he's going to be a very good signing for us.

I've liked what I've seen so far.

That's why we play 4231. The sitting mids can cover centre and CBs move out wider.

TBF when DG goes forward, Robertson slots in to cover usually

I've only seen DG play once, and that was the friendly against Dundee Utd.

I know it was only a friendly, but I like to think that after all the years I've spent both playing and watching football I can recognise a good full back. He's not John Brownlie, but DG is a good full back IMO. Lets hope he goes on to prove to be an excellent signing.

Was confident that a guy who has played that position his whole career would be good for us, and he looked very good. That said, DVZ and Michael Hart didn't bear out that theory!
