Wolves loanee Austin Samuels has left Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass excited after a positive debut from the 20-year-old forward.
The striker made his maiden Aberdeen appearance in the weekend’s draw with Ross County after signing from Wolves. Glass has the option to sign him permanently at the end of the season, and moving across the international break unbeaten in the Scottish Premiership, Samuels has left Glass keen to see more.
He said: “Austin did really well, he was positive, direct, he even turned a couple of clearances into opportunities for us which is a little bit different to what we’ve had before. That pace and that energy up front was exciting for us, he’s a real forward thinking player.
“We are a work in progress. We’ve let in more goals than we’d like, but we’ve looked more threatening as a team compared with what was happening at the end of last season. We’re more positive as a team and it’s important that that continues.
“We’re unbeaten in the league and we’ll try to maintain that as long as we can while trying to win a bigger share of them. We want to score more goals and keep them out at the other end as well. We’ve a chance to put some work in and we hope that bears fruit.”
