Marc McNulty is looking forward to resurrecting his partnership with Stefan Scougall next season.
The Sheffield United striker, whose transfer from Livingston was officially announced earlier this week, played alongside Scougall at Almondvale Stadium before the latter joined Nigel Clough’s side last term.
Revealing how the Scotland under-21 international’s success since arriving in England helped pave the way for his own move south, McNulty said: “I am very good friends with Scougs and he knows my game inside out. The same way I do his.
“He’s someone I have know since I was a young boy and he has nothing but good things to say about Sheffield United.
“We’ve always kept in touch and spoke on a regular basis even after he left. He kept telling me how he’s loving every minute of being here and hearing such positive comments made my decision even easier.”
McNulty and Scougall scored a combined total of 21 goals for Livingston last season.
United, languishing 21st in the League One table when Clough took charge in October, eventually finished seventh and reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
“The club had a tremendous FA Cup run and only just fell short of reaching the play-offs after a very slow start,” McNulty said. “Stefan has told me how the supporters and passionate and fanatical about their club and I’m itching to get started in pre-season.
“I honestly can’t wait to experience the atmosphere of Bramall Lane on a matchday.”
