July 3rd 2017: “I’m very excited for the start of the season, especially with a big game to (A*t Utd) start with. I’ll give one hundred percent for the club and will be looking to get forward at every opportunity. I want to play every week and play good, entertaining football.”
July 17th (on the A*r Debacle): “Everybody felt down afterwards. The players knew they let the fans down. That was a good thing as they realised how big a deal it was. It did affect us because it wasn’t good enough. But I know the manager has big ambitions for this club. This is only a short-term setback but you can’t do that against your rivals. We have the chance against Clyde to make amends and we need to take it. It was a great atmosphere at Ayr and if we’d got the result it would have been a great occasion. Sadly the performance wasn’t good enough. It is a while since Kilmarnock have won there and it would have been nice to get that monkey off our back. It is a derby and they won so they get the bragging rights until the next time.
Ayr didn’t play us off the park or pass us off the park, but they deserved to win. They got the goal and we couldn’t break them down although we were not convincing at trying to break them down. However, there are nine points still to play for in the group and we just need to make sure we collect them and qualify for the next stage. It can sometimes be a process when there are a few new players. The pre-season campaigns I had with Luton and Partick were usually turbulent. It normally takes a few games to get settled into a new way of playing. I know that is not something fans want to hear, but it will improve. The gaffer has brought in a lot of good players this summer and there is a standard we should all be meeting.”
May 13th 2018: Stephen is called up into the Full Scotland squad.
