They will meet again tonight as Ayr this time travel to Dens Park as the race for Premiership promotion places heats up. Hazard has made five appearances since returning to James McPake’s side on loan from Celtic, keeping an impressive four clean sheets.

The Northern Irish youth international says it was nice to meet Doohan on league duty: “Ross and I get on well. He’s a great goalie, we’ve been at Celtic since we were both 16.

“It’s good to come up against him and we’ll see what happens on Tuesday.

“It’s not a bad record (four clean sheets in five) to come into for a second spell. I think everyone is getting on well, the management staff have been brilliant.

“The players have been brilliant, welcoming in everybody. We’re a real unit, we’ll stick together, and we can look forward now.”
