Since, he’s been at Middlesbrough, Norwich City and now at Hillsborough, where the last four-and-a-half seasons have been a real struggle for the Scot.

This season has been his best scoring one though – he’s netted seven Championship goals so far – and it’s sprung up some Championship interest as he nears the end of his Wednesday deal.
