Andy Dawson says new loan signing Greg Luer has a “great reputation”, describing him as a “bright, young player”.Luer joined on loan from Hull City on Tuesday for an initial 28-day loan following two goals in six appearances for the Tigers this season.
“He’s another player from Hull City, like Conor (Townsend),” the joint-caretaker manager stated, talking to The Iron PlayerHD.
“Greg has a great reputation and I’ve spoken to a lot of people about him, as has Nick Daws. It’s someone my brother (Michael Dawson) mentioned a few months ago, about a bright, young player coming into their first team squad.
“Mike said what a very good player he is and he’s started games for Hull’s first team and also come on as a substitute and he’s always looked like he could score goals; which is a great art to have.
“I’ve managed to watch him a number of times, as has Nick and our other scouts as well. He’s a goalscorer and, given his chance in-and-around the box, nine times out of ten he will stick the ball in the back of the net.
“You don’t get many about and it’s those kind of strikers who could make the difference in games at any level.”
Andy Dawson says Greg Luer looked bright and full of confidence in his first training session on Tuesday.
Dawson stated Luer was already hungry to be make his Iron debut after joining in with training for the first time on Tuesday morning.
The joint caretaker manager is also confident that, given his chance, the 21-year-old will score goals for the Iron in his loan spell with the club.
“We’re looking forward to working with him,” he continued.
“He trained with us for the first time on Tuesday and looked bright and full of confidence, so hopefully he’s ready just to kick on and score goals for us.
"People at Hull are full of praise for him and for him to come out on loan and get game time will hopefully see him starting to flourish and score goals for us. From there, hopefully he can go onwards and upwards with his career.
“Greg will be vying for a place in the team, just like any other player in the squad. He’s been training with the first team, with top-class Championship/Premier League players day-in, day-out.
“He’s one who, if you provide him with chances, will score goals and that’s what we’ve done all season as a team. We have created chances, so he’s a great addition to have in the squad.”
