DAVE Mackay reckons in-demand Dylan Nguene Bikey’s blistering pace meant he was always on a fast-track to the top.
The 21-year-old has been on trial with Hibs, whilst Dundee United, Morton and St Johnstone are all said to be tracking his development.
Mackay signed the former Dieppe and Nantes B forward for Stirling Albion on amateur terms in December and watched him net an impressive nine times in nine appearances for the League Two outfit.
The Binos have cleared the Frenchman to leave for a full-time club and Mackay believes it is a move Bikey can thrive on.
The Forthbank manager said: “I know there’s a few clubs interested in him. That’s understandable, with the goals he’s scored and his performances for us.
“He just has to make sure he chooses the right club for him and for his progression. He’s still a young guy.
“He definitely is good enough to step up. We knew when we signed him we were giving him a bit of a shop window.
“We wanted him to help us in the short-term, which he did, and if he did perform the way we thought he could do it was always going to be the case that he would move on.
“We would have loved to have kept him for the rest of the season but players like that deserve to move on to full-time football and hopefully on to the next level.
“There’s not many players going about with the pace he’s got, which is his biggest asset. Although he is a very good footballer as well, his pace is incredible.
“He causes defences all sorts of problems.”
