There are Irish stories of interest outside the Scottish Premier League too. Former Shamrock Rovers attacker Tommy Stewart is gearing up for a new campaign with Partick Thistle in Division 1.
Stewart starred for the Hoops on their European run 12 months ago and grabbed the goal in Israel which set up a clash with Juventus.
If his Twitter page is anything to go by, Stewart still has fond memories of those days he spent in the hoops. It is plastered with a large pic of the Northern Irishman in action for Rovers.
