"SPEND some time with Steven Naismith and you quickly realise why Alex Neil was so keen to add him to his ranks for Norwich City’s survival battle.Every football fan worth their salt knows what the January signing can do on the pitch: a key player for Scotland, he is a proven performer at the very highest level. He has over 100 Premier League appearances under his belt and, memorably, scored a stunning hat-trick for Everton against defending champions Chelsea earlier this season.
But Naismith is no prima donna. Straightforward and humble, the 29-year-old son of a social worker exudes a steely determination and speaks with frankness about the task that he and his teammates have been set – to keep the Canaries in the division.
“I’m looking forward to it. That was something I had to think about when I was coming, that it was going to be a challenge. When I was at Rangers and fighting for titles, the pressure was on every week and that’s pretty similar to what it will be like here,” Naismith told ‘The Canary’ at Colney."
