It’s a massive blow for Kilmarnock to lose Greg Stewart, but from their pain, Aberdeen have to strike and land the Birmingham City forward.
The versatile attacker was recalled by his parent club, but Garry Monk has already said it wasn’t his decision, but the work of the club’s hierarchy.
The Birmingham forward has been wonderful for Steve Clarke, and he could do the same for Derek McInnes at Aberdeen.
Stewart is the perfect partner for Sam Cosgrove
The attacker has scored eight times with six assists in Scotland’s top flight this season, which is a remarkable record.
He could no doubt increase this alongside in-form Stuart Cosgrove.
If the former Dundee man was played just behind the Dons talisman, he would be able to create many more chances for Cosgrove, as well as do the same goal-scoring job he has done in Ayrshire. It could be a lethal partnership.
Changes of management have scuppered Stewart’s Birmingham chances, but he is still a quality player, and McInnes should invest in the man he had at Pittodrie last season.
It didn’t work in the Granite City last time out, but things are different now.
The forward is on form and showing his full potential. For a potentially cheap fee, Stewart has to become a top priority.
