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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
