BILLY REID believes there is more to come from Jon McShane after snapping up the former St Mirren star on a two-year deal.
The striker pledged his future to Hamilton Accies ahead of their Irn-Bru First Division match with Partick Thistle.
And the 20-year-old, who has impressed on loan since January from Saints, celebrated in style by bagging Accies' second goal in the 2-2 draw.
Hamilton boss Reid said: "We signed him for two years before the game and I am over the moon.
"I am delighted with the business we have done with Jon. We have found a goalscorer.
"There are still bits and pieces for him to add to his game, but he is 20 years old and he is a finisher and that is the big, big thing for us."
McShane's strike, which put his side 2-0 up, was not enough to claim all three points for Reid's side as Thistle fought back to clinch a point at New Douglas Park.
There was late drama as veteran Accies defender Mark McLaughlin saw red for bringing down Sean Welsh just outside the box, but Hamilton held on for a point.
The match could prove to be McLaughlin's last for Accies, however, with Reid hailing him as one of the club's most reliable players over his eight-year stay.
He said: "He has been a talisman and a stalwart for us.
"I am not in a position to say what the situation is with Mark, but what he has done for me and this football club has been fantastic. He is probably one of the most committed individuals that I have worked with.
"He gives his heart and soul to Hamilton and you could see how much he means to the supporters."
