St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson has been impressed with the recent performances of goalkeeper Zander Clark.

The 28-year-old has helped the Perth side go on a lengthy unbeaten run which has propelled the team up the Premiership table and into the last eight of the Betfred Cup.

Made some crucial stops

Clark was recently at his best in St Johnstone’s 1-1 draw with Celtic. He helped the Saints to a point with a few vital saves, especially one from Odsonne Edouard in the first-half which stopped Neil Lennon’s side from taking the lead.

Indeed, so impressed has Davidson been with Clark’s recent displays that he is hoping that the player gets a call-up to the Scotland squad.

“That will be the ambition for all the younger goalies. Zander is still young in terms of a keeper’s age” he said (The Courier).

“Very happy to have him”

“It’s great seeing him back playing with the confidence that I know he’s got, producing saves when we need him to. Long may that continue. Like the rest of the squad here, I’m very happy to have him” Davidson went on.

The St Johnstone manager went on to praise Clarke for the saves he made in the recent draw against Celtic.

“I told Zander afterwards that he has helped us get that point. He pulled off a couple of tremendous saves – making his body big in the first half with the Edouard chance and in the second half the deflected shot was probably the pick of them. It showed why having a keeper like Zander is so important” he concluded.
