Bilic joins Stones fan club

John_StonescfakepigskinSlaven Bilic has joined the John Stones fan club.

Despite his disappointment at the draw against the Toffees he took time out to praise the opposition centre half claiming: “He is definitely a quality player. ”

The central defender’s display may have been responsible for the Irons being restricted to just the one goal in yesterday’s draw.

Bilic said:  “So good, so calm, such composure with the ball. On Saturday he did really well against Andy Carroll

“I watched one game when Everton played at Newcastle a couple of years ago. He was at centre-half, and he was 20 or so, and he was magnificent.”
