MK Dons manager Paul Tisdale has heaped praise on Russell Martin, as quoted by the Milton Keynes Citizen.
The 33-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Ibrox. However, the club opted against a permanent deal and instead allowed him to return to Norwich City.
Things looked bleak as he
However, all that soon changed and he has become central to The Dons’ success.
They secured promotion to League One on Saturday, with a 1-0 win over fellow challengers Mansfield Town.
“Probably my signing of the season was Russell Martin,” Tisdale told the Milton Keynes Citizen.
“There is experience and know-how, and then there’s doing the right thing over and over and over and over. And he does that.”
High praise indeed for a player whose career had looked on its last legs.
He’s established himself as a first team regular once more and with promotion to the third tier, things are looking up.
It would be a stretch to say Rangers made the wrong call in not snapping him up. It’s also unlikely at this stage that he’ll add to his 29 Scotland caps.
However, it’s clear that he’s dusted himself down from a forgettable Ibrox stint, and is back to performing to a good standard.
