Tom Walsh admits Caley Thistle’s free-flowing football in Inverness this season is reminiscent of his time at Rangers.
The Inverness winger made a first team breakthrough with the Ibrox club five years ago in the Championship.
Before leaving permanently for Dumbarton, Walsh grasped a handful of starts for the Glasgow giants under the temporary charge of Kenny McDowall and then Stuart McCall.
Only now, though, is the talented 23-year-old experiencing that kind of attacking dominance as an established first team member.
Caley Thistle’s 2-0 triumph over Queen of the South, with Sean Welsh and Walsh striking in the first half, made it six wins from six at home this season.
It remains early days in the Championship title race, but all indications are the Inverness team have set poor Caledonian Stadium form of the past behind them.
Walsh said: “There have been wee spells in my career where I’ve been part of something like this before. I got a wee taste of it at Rangers.
“But I’ve never had it as an established first team player. Playing every week, I’m really enjoying it.
“I’ve got to keep working hard to keep myself in the team, but that’s me been here over a year now and I love it.
“We’re producing some great attacking play. We can all move and beat players and we’re not stuck to one attacking position.
“There’s licence for me, Miles Story, Aaron Doran and James Keatings when fit to roam in and around Jordan White up front. It is great to be part of.”
Walsh praised the quality of the club’s new playing surface, stressing: “Fair play to the groundsmen, Dale and Tommy – it is immaculate.
“You couldn’t ask for a better pitch. It’s really helping us. When we move it, one or two touch, that’s when we get joy like we did against Queen of the South.
“We’ve just got to keep doing that. We want to make this place a fortress.”
The only gripe from the home camp on Saturday was that they didn’t score more, although Walsh was still pleased by the manner of the win.
He added: “We had chances to kill it off with a third goal, but it was another good performance from the boys.
“Last week, we won the game (at Dunfermline) but it was a bit of an ugly victory. We played some nice stuff today and we were back to our good passing and movement. A couple more goals was all that was missing.”
