Walsall's on-loan Scunthorpe United defender Scott Laird, who has been in fine form since joining the club following the departure of Rico Henry, has spoken to the local press and discussed how he is using his experience to help the younger members of the Saddlers squad as they make their way in the game.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Scott, who is likely to join the Saddlers on a permanent basis in January, said; "We have got a young, thriving team and I try to guide them as best I can. I really enjoy being one of the more experienced players and getting my points across.

"It’s very important to do it in the right way because football has changed a lot – even since I made my debut. When I was coming into the game, the older pros could be quite tough. They would do things that you’re not allowed to do these days.

"But the lads here are great to work with because they want to learn. They want to get better and they are happy to be told where they need to improve.

"When you are a kid you think to have got loads of time. But you don’t. It goes quick and is a very short career. I’d like to stay in football and being here I have learnt so much to take into my future footballing career if I want to become a coach."
