The 21-year-old Scot was brought to The Riverside by former Boro boss Gordon Strachan in May 2010.

Although he played a number of games during his first season south of the border, he made just one appearance in 2011/12, when he also spent time on loan at Walsall.

However, the left-back is getting more opportunities this season and admits it has been a long haul for him in North Yorkshire.

The former Livingston player told The Northern Gazette: "It's been a long time in coming. I have been wanting to play football and I have started to get some games.

"I am really enjoying my football right now. These things, contract situations, take a lot of time, I don't think I have anything to worry about.

"There's no rush and it's the happiest I have been since I joined and it's the most I have enjoyed my football since I started here.

"I'm enjoying Teesside. I have settled in now down here and I'm not thinking about going anywhere."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
