The 51-cap international spent just under two years at Easter Road, beginning in February 2017 with an initial loan move from Celtic. He then joined permanently in the summer before helping Neil Lennon’s side to a top-four finish and record points total. He would spend another six months in Leith before leaving the following January to join Frank Lampard’s Derby County side, though he didn’t play a single game before moving on.
