Manager Dougie Freedman has confirmed that Zat Knight has been assigned the role as new club captain for the forthcoming season.
Freedman made the announcement exclusively at the club’s annual Fans Forums event on Monday evening.
“Zat Knight is someone I believe can lead the club,” the manager explained. “He leads by example both on and off the pitch and is very good around our younger players.
“There were two or three players I could have selected for the role, and Zat is one of those whose experience and leadership skills certainly fit the bill.”
