NEW St Mirren striker Duckens Nazon savoured his first goal in Scottish football but claims he doesn’t care who gets the glory as long as the Paisley side stay up this season.

The French-born Haiti international was a January deadline-day signing for manager Oran Kearney and got off the mark in Saturday’s Scottish Cup defeat to Dundee United.

The former Coventry and Oldham forward reckons personal glory comes second to Saints avoiding the drop.

He said: “It was a really nice moment for me to get my first goal for St Mirren but unfortunately we lost the game. As a striker it is always important to get a goal quickly when you move to a new club and that will hopefully give me confidence to score more.

“The most important thing is the club stays in the Premiership. If I can help them do that that would be fantastic.

“I will try my maximum to score goals. But if the other boys do it instead of me then that is totally fine too.

“I need to build up my confidence and my fitness but that will come.

“Scottish football is very physical, even compared to England. You have to try to hold the ball up if you can but the defenders never give you any time.”

Nazon has already become a cult hero with some supporters who are hailing him as The Duck.

He smiled: “We need the fans to be our 12th man. Even when we lost the game to Rangers they still clapped us at the end. So we could see they were still behind us and we really need them.

“They are calling me The Duck which was a nickname I had in England too.

“I quite like it.”
