“That was when I played my best. But it was unbelievable.

“I have fans to thank, all the staff and the boys that I spend every day with. They were not real to me.

“It can be quite difficult for a 23-year-old to go to the other side of the world but they made it so easy.

“I am super grateful to everyone who has played a role. I just want to go on and win this national cup final and these last five games. ”

Devlin’s never-ending approach to the game and his ability to handle difficulty have earned him a cult following among the punters in Gorgie.

But he wondered why he was such a big hit.

“I’m really not sure why that is,” he said. I just try to be myself on the pitch as much as possible and I guess I’m a passionate player.

“I am someone who will work hard for 90 or 120 minutes. As long as I have a job to do, I’ll work as hard as I can for that time – and the fans respect that. They want to meet someone who, even when things don’t go their way, will give 100% and that’s what I’m proud of myself for.

“I guess they get the energy out of that and when they give it back, not only to me but to the team, we get energized and it energizes us to keep working hard. .

“I have to thank them so much for their support this season. They give me the energy to run around like a headless chicken.”

Devlin is now determined to cement his place in the national cup finals he will face Rangers in the May.

He’s adamant that they won’t leave the gas pedal at Tannadice today.

He said: “United will want to beat us by a game because they haven’t beaten us all season but we are full of confidence and we will go there to take the three points.

“We have competition for places all over the park, which is a good thing.

“That’s why we are where we are this season – because of the quality that we have. You cannot achieve what we have, European championships and a national cup final, without it.

“We don’t have the biggest squad but anyone can step into the team and do a job.

“It is important for the whole team to keep the momentum going.

“Most players have a slick personality but that’s normal for every team in the league this time around.

“Every player has problems with them at some point, so it’s not just me. But the important thing is that if you’re fit enough to compete then you’ll do your best to keep going. ”
