I'm totally committed - Reid

Last updated : 11 May 2009 By Deano
The 20 year-old has had criticism for his sometimes lathargic attitude in games, despite bagging 18 goals for the season and has been linked with a move to a host of clubs in a higher division.

Spekaing to the 'Tiser, Reid hit back, saying: "For anyone to say I'm not putting enough effort in then they don't understand the game.

"My heart is beating just as much as anyone else's in the team and I can assure you that I am just as committed as the other ten lads out there.

"All my life people have said if I was anymore laid back then I'd fall over but I can't express enough that my goals and performances mean a hell of a lot to me. I am 100% committed and when we lose no one hurts more than me and I want promotion next year."

He added: "I'm disappointed I didn't manage the 20th goal but on the other hand I'm happy. I said last summer that I would be content with 15.

"Playing wide right alot and to get the goals I have, is a good achievement."
