The 20-year-old had been sidelined since January due to an illness which affected the muscles around his heart, but he continued his comeback in Canada.

Macleod set up Nicky Law’s winning strike with a clever turn and McCoist is glad to have the fully-fit youngster back in his first-team plans.

He told the club’s official website: "His confidence is rising and it's like having a new player in many ways. Lewis has had a seriously tough time of it this year with the medical condition he had.

"That was very, very difficult for him and seeing the boys coming in to train each day, especially for a young lad, is soul destroying.

"Lewis handled the situation very well and he has come back looking very strong and he has worked hard in pre-season.

"Without wanting to put any pressure on him at all, if he plays anything like he did for the rest of the season the way he did against Ottawa, we'll be happy."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
