Alex McLeish has said that Stephen Ireland is capable of playing anywhere given his current form.
Speaking to the Official Site McLeish described Ireland as being a ‘revelation’ in recent weeks and the gaffer thinks he can now perform in any of the forward positions for the club.
‘Ireland has been a revelation in recent weeks, when you are playing in the form he is playing in, then moving him out to the left is not a hardship because his confidence looks as if it is back and he came in off the side and played extremely well. When Stevie is in form like that, he can play anywhere.’
Ireland’s form recently has certainly been far improved, and Alex is right in terms of commenting on his workrate and Stevie is now getting stuck in when we aren’t on the ball. It may have been a long time coming, but he’s turning into a very valuable player for us.
