Nikola Zigic has landed himself a tall order - finding the goals to fire Birmingham City upwards after completing a £6million switch from Valencia.
The giant Serbia striker has agreed a four-year deal with the St Andrew's club, becoming Alex McLeish’s third signing of the close season.
Zigic stands at almost 6ft 8in - he doesn’t exactly dwarf Spurs’ Peter Crouch, but the England international has finally found someone in the Barclays Premier League to look up to. Albeit by less than an inch.
Birmingham City star Barry Ferguson feels he has proved his critics wrong after a successful first season at St Andrews.
Ferguson was brought to St Andrews last summer by his former Rangers and international boss Alex McLeish after a controversial final season north of the border.
The former Blackburn man has been instrumental in Birmingham's surprise success this term and has been virtually an ever-present in McLeish's starting XI.
The 32-year-old admits he has been happy with his performances this year and believes he has silenced a few of his critics.
