He has matured from an original hot-headed, troublesome player, to one of considerable talent in his midfielder role, and has tempered his emotions very significantly in recent seasons. Events at Tynecastle showed his 'new' common sense, where after being manhandled to the ground by the Hearts dugout clown, Daz very quickly exited the melee back onto the pitch and into the centre circle & out of trouble. A few years ago... we can all guess what it might have been.
MacKinnon was a player that many of us originally saw as a liability in an Accies jersey, and often there were calls for him to be sold on. How fortunate that the Club persevered with him, as Daz's contribution to our continued Premiership status, has been significant, with 100%+ effort, little or no injuries, and total commitment to both the jersey, and his team mates.
Most of us now recognise him as a mainstay of the team, an almost ever-present, (other than when yellow cards mount up!!), and hope than he can continue to exert his influence on the younger members of the squad coming through.
IMO, Daz is an Accies Legend, alongside the Chris Swailes & George McCluskey's of this Accies world.
What say you??
