Suffering a minor knock, the 26 year old striker is a doubt for Queen's last game of the season away to Livingston on the weekend but with the chance to say goodbye to the fans properly at the Almondvale Stadium, the former Hibs man will be chomping at the bit to play.

Praising the highly rated Scot the former Dundee United boss is pleased the striker has earned the move south of the border that he craved as he told the clubs official site, he said “I'm disappointed for the Club but pleased for the boy. He wanted the move down south and he has got it and has signed a good contract.”

“He's been fantastic for me, the club and the support he is very popular and I wish him all the best.. He's earned a move to the Championship and rightly so. For me he's one of the most gifted players in Scotland and now he's got his attitude right.”

“The penny's dropped, he is 26 and he realised the ability thing wasn't going to get him anywhere he had to combine both. I wish the boy well, everyone at the Club does. We appreciate all he's done."

Loyal to the Palmerston Park club there was no doubt in the mind of the 49 year old that Dobbie would not move to any other first division club and chose a move outside of Scotland as he now adds “I will be honest he is quite emotional he actually told me that he would not play for anyone else in the first division. " That facet of his personality would have certainly not gone unnoticed by Swansea manager Roberto Martinez.
