Jamie looks forward to building on successful season

Jamie MacDonald may be experiencing sleepless nights at the moment but it has nothing to do with the prospect of facing champions Celtic.

The shot stopper and his wife Roxzannah welcomed their third child, a son called Levi, into the world shortly after our match with Rangers on Saturday.

It caps a whirlwind year for our goalkeeper, who reclaimed his place as our number one shot stopper and earned a new two-year contract to keep him at Rugby Park until 2020.

And as his new arrival joins daughter Darragh and son Noah in the MacDonald household, the 32-year-old can reflect on a great campaign on the field too.

Ahead of our trip to Celtic Park, Jamie says our season will have been a positive one regardless of the outcome of our final away trip. 

"We are obviously disappointed with results but performances haven't been that bad.

"It is not nice losing. Since the turn of the year you get into the habit of winning, it is a good feeling and you want to keep that going as long as possible.

"But at the same time these last few games have not defined our season.

"We have finished fifth, we have had a great season, especially from where we came from when we were bottom after eight games with three points.

"Whatever happens it has been a successful season and we look forward to building for next year.

"We drew 1-1 at Parkhead and we beat them here so we got there knowing we can get a result but also knowing it will be a difficult game, especially if Celtic are on top form."
