ON THE DISPLAY AGAINST CHELSEA: "In the first half perhaps we paid a little too much respect to our opponents and were overawed by Chelsea and playing in their stadium.

"In the second half that was a thing of the past. We managed to keep the ball and our performance in the second half thoroughly deserved a point.

"It was a great performance and a great result."

ON THE signing of russian striker ROMAN PAVLYUCHENKO: "He is almost the complete footballer. He can do different jobs - he can play with his back to goal, he can win it in the air.

"Our job is to make sure he can achieve the same level with us as he has demonstrated with Russia.

"I hope he gives us the same goals and intensity he showed in Euro 2008."

ON THE ARRIVAL OF versatile DEFENDER VEDRAN CORLUKA: "We are a bit short in defence, especially with Alan Hutton's injury and it's good to have cover.

"Corluka can play in a variety of positions and he can help the team if we have any further injuries.

"Circumstances will decide where we decide to play him. But he can play right back, centre back and defensive midfield equally well. He will give lots of solutions to the team.
