Daly Lets it Out

Clyde striker Michael Daly spoke to the media following Saturday’s League Two win over Queen’s Park.

The 28-year-old grabbed the winning goal with a last-minute header and ran almost the full length of the pitch to celebrate in front of the away support.

“I enjoyed the goal,” he said. “You could call it my trademark type of goal but it was a great ball in by David (Gray). It was good to get three points and win a derby game, but we weren’t at our best and the manager spoke to us about that after the game.

“After the play-off and the missed penalty last season, I felt a bit of responsibility and I wanted to give something back to the Clyde fans, so I let a bit of that out in my celebration. I hope they enjoyed the goal as much as I did.”

Daly was introduced to the match as a substitute during the second half and he acknowledged the fact that there was going to be stiff competition for starting places this season:-

“The manager has brought in good players so I need to keep working hard and keep believing that I can play. We had experience on the bench with myself and guys like Stuart McColm and Pat Scullion, so we’ve got a strong squad.”

Michael concluded with some words on his new manager, Barry Ferguson:-

“He has high expectations for us and it’s up to us to handle it. His professionalism is second to none and he cares about you and wants to make you a better player. He’s also a winner and that’s what the club needs.

“There’s plenty more to come from us.”
