He was great while he was here - on and off the park.
He has done well since he went into management and he had a great success last season guiding St Mirren to the League Cup, which was a terrific achievement.
They haven't had the best of starts this season and they will be determined to get their first win of the season on Saturday.
But we are going there in a positive frame of mind and looking to win the game. We are under no illusions as to how difficult it will be for us this weekend, though.
We know how they will play and how many good players they have in their squad. The first 10-15 minutes of the game will be really important, we will have to keep it tight and hopefully we can keep their fans quiet from the start.
It was a disappointing afternoon for us at Fir Park last weekend, but we have had a good reaction from the boys.
We looked really strong in the last half hour at Motherwell and there were positives for us to take forward.
