Omar Kader is delighted to be back at Station Park, even though he’ll miss the next four months with work commitments.

The popular winger left Forfar at the end of last season for Championship side Alloa and after the move never worked out, he jumped at the chance to sign for the Loons again last week.

Kader made his second debut for the club in Saturday’s 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Dunfermline Athletic and almost grabbed a goal.

Omar said: “It’s good to be back, I was here for the last three years so it feels good to be back, there’s a lot of familiar faces around and a lot of nice folk at the club.

“I’m disappointed it didn’t work out but I think that’s what happens in football, you’ve just got to move on.

“It was a difficult decision to leave Forfar in the first place so to come back was an easy one to make.”

Despite re-signing for Forfar just last week, he revealed will be leaving them again after the Brechin game due to work until the beginning of 2016.

“I’m going away with my work until the end of the year so I’m obviously appreciative that the gaffer and the rest of the guys are happy with me to go away and come back,” he said.

“I’m available for next week against Brechin but after that I’m away until the new year.”

Omar lasted 66 minutes on his re-debut before he was taken off.

He said the loss was tough on the Loons players because they never really showed what they are capable of.

He continued: “The guys are disappointed because they feel that we didn’t show the quality that we really have, we let Dunfermline dictate proceedings, especially at home; we’re strong at home so to lose 4-0 is obviously disappointing.

“Dunfermline are a good side but I don’t think we ever got started today.”

The club hopes to run a Supporters Coach to Cowdenbeath on Saturday, September 19.

It will leave the Myre Car Park at 12.45p.m. and the cost will be £7.

This weekend sees the Loons head to face fierce rivals Brechin City - and old favourite Darren Dods - at Glebe Park for a massive derby game.
