John Gibson insists moving to Alloa can help his dream to get back to the big-time.
The former Dundee keeper has signed for Barry Smith’s Wasps after leaving the newly-promoted Dens Park club recently to kick-start his career.
Now the 25-year-old, who’s watched ex-Alloa keeper Scott Bain clinch a move back to the top-flight with Dundee following his release from Aberdeen, believes he can also kick on.
Gibson said: “I’m delighted to sign for Alloa. It’s just what I need at this stage in my career after being at Dundee for so long.
“Look at Scott Bain who’s just gone to Dundee. He was released by Aberdeen a while back but built himself up again at Alloa. Sometimes taking a step back is what you have to do and I feel my best football is still ahead of me.
“I want to repay the faith Barry Smith has shown in me and can’t wait to be a No 1.”
Gibson is relishing the Championship next season with Rangers, Hearts and Hibs all set to be vying for the title. The big keeper sees no reason why the Wasps can’t mount their own challenge.
Gibson said: “It’s going to be the best league in Scotland. It will be the most exciting because several teams can win it and we want to play our part.
“We don’t want to be down scrapping like last season. We want to be up near the top end going for a play-off place because nothing is impossible.”
