Houston praises midfielder

Houston praises midfielder

Peter Houston has been full of praise for versatile midfielder David Robertson and identified him as one of his most valuable players.

The 24-year-old has appeared in virtually every position for the Arabs in the past and is currently enjoying his best spell of the season.

"David Robertson is not the most pleasing player on the eye to watch but he's a real players' player," Houston told The Scotsman. "He's been here for years, right through the youth ranks and has been a utility player - which has not always helped him.

"One thing you can guarantee from him is he gives everything and so often he does the donkey work for others," he continued.

"He's a great boy and a great player. He'll fill every position for me and never moans about it once, he just gets on with the job. I like players like that."
