Lalpekhlua, 20, who plays for FC Pune, said his major worry would be the biting cold of a Scottish winter. "This opportunity is a dream come true for me -- it's always been my dream to play for a big European club," he told the Daily Record.

"But the most important thing is for me to get acclimatised as quickly as possible. Obviously the conditions in Scotland are going to be very different from what we are used to in India. I think that could be a major hurdle for both of us.

"I won't have much time to prove myself so I will have to get used to the conditions quickly and not allow them to ruin my chances. I'm prepared and ready for the challenge."
