"It's certainly a very exciting squad and what I like about it is it has a bit of everything," announced the Toon legend.

"There's experience, youth and talent, so what more do you need ?

"What we have to do now is prove that we can put those things together when it counts.

"We'll try our best this season and the signs are encouraging that we're heading in the right direction."
