Who is Stuart Findlay?

Written by Dan King

Big games in big stadiums are nothing new for Stuart Findlay - although Newcastle’s FA Cup third round replay against Birmingham at St. James’ Park could well be his biggest yet.

The Scotland under-21 international started his career with Celtic without making a first team appearance, and had loan spells at Morton, Dumbarton and Kilmarnock.

At Kilmarnock last season, he made 22 appearances in the Scottish Premier League and ran out at Ibrox against Rangers in the Scottish FA Cup.

Following his release by Celtic in the summer, he joined Newcastle and told nufc.co.uk: "When I came here, I was shocked how much the immediate city are just in love with the club.

"At Celtic, in Glasgow, it's very much a divided city between Celtic and Rangers, but I've never experienced an atmosphere like this, where everyone's singing from the same hymn sheet and they're all rooting for the one club. To have that many passionate fans of a club is a special thing.

"I don't think I've had a day I've walked out and not seen a Newcastle strip yet. I'm living with a good friend of mine who's Newcastle daft, and as soon as he heard I was signing here he was willing to let me stay there as long as I wanted!”

Now Findlay's pal will be prouder than ever as the defender prepares to line up for his Magpies debut.
