• Osman Kakay, who joined Scottish club Partick Thistle on loan from English Championship side, Queens Park Rangers earlier this month says he was elated after making his debut.
  • Kakay is the second International from Sierra Leone to play for the Jabs after Mustapha Dumbuya.
  • The former Chesterfield and Livingston player will play for the Jabs with number 24 jersey on loan until January 2020

“I was excited after my full debut on Friday because it was a great game we played as a team. For me in particular, it’s a great opportunity, playing first-team football,” Kakay told FSL online.

“Kenny Miller’s second-half equaliser earned us a 1-1 draw at Gayfield Park with me playing 90-minute of football after a long time out. I hope to continue in upcoming matches.”

The young defender made his international debut for Sierra Leone against Ethiopia during the 2019 AFCON qualifier.

This is his second spell in Scotland after the first loan at Livingston, where he played 12 games in the Scottish Championship for the Lions.

Partick are currently second from bottom of the Scottish Championship, having picked up two points from their opening five matches.
