David Martindale would like to see Joel Nouble turn out for either side of the Old Firm next year, following Livingston’s win over St Johnstone which saw the front man net his seventh league goal of the season.
As we approach match day 33 of the Scottish Premiership, just 6 games remain and the countdown to the summer transfer window continues. Some players have chosen to extend their stay at their designated club, some fly the nest in search of a bigger challenge and some quite simply wait for the offers to come their way.
One man who has been going about his business quietly is the Livingston striker .
Nouble began life at Livingston in July 2021 on a two year deal but didn’t feature in the first team for his first season. The Lions boss David Martindale felt he needed a bit more playing experience so, the then 25 year old, was sent North of the country to join Dick Campbell’s Arbroath side on loan.
Fast forward two seasons and the Englishman has been the star man under Martindale.
He started the season against Rangers getting the opening goal in the first 5 minutes. At 6″4 the striker has been a handful for most defenders in the league. On Saturday the Lions got themselves back on track after falling by the wayside and slipping away from a place in the top 6 with a 2-0 win over St Johnstone.
Once again, Nouble got the opener with a fine finish past Remi Matthews making it seven for the season so far, and with just a year to go in West Lothian, the manager is expecting a big move for his striker.
