Evans eyes turn to striker after Tidser arrival

Having signed midfielder Michael Tidser this week for a reported £75k from Greenock Morton, boss Steve Evans aims to bring in a striker.

Speaking to the Advertiser, Evans was pleased to have signed the 23 year old.

“If you break it down and Kari Arnason plays centre-half, we now have Tidser alongside Noble, O'Connor and Frecklington in that central midfield area. There will be some weeks when we play three in there, so it will be good to have another option and there has to be balance as well. Tidser is a great signing for us.”

Meanwhile, Evans stayed tight lipped on his striker target; “People think that if you speak to a player for 20 minutes, it means they are coming here, but any additions have to be the right type and the same goes for a striker. They must be young, energetic, hungry, creative and offer value for money."

"If we spoke about every player linked with us we could be here all day and anyone who thinks Matt Tubbs is the only one I'm interested in is delusional. As for Watt, when he leaves Celtic, it will be for close to £2 million."

“There are other strikers we are keen to bring in and it is not for me to spec- ulate. While we go about our business, I prefer to keep my head below the parapet and try to get a deal done.” Evans added/
