Steven Naismith was pleased to end his maiden Everton season with a goal.

The Scot was recalled to the Blues side which lost 2-1 at Chelsea and provided a well-taken first-half strike.

Speaking afterwards the former Rangers forward explained there is more to come from him next term after a season of recovery and readjustment.

He told evertontv: "I have played more games and started more games than I thought.

"The quality in the squad is really high. Coming back from injury and moving to a new club are big things for a footballer and I am happy with the amount I have played.

"I have not played anywhere near my best but hopefully I can keep in good shape over the summer, come back and have a good pre-season and push on."

Naismith agreed with his compatriot and now former manager David Moyes that Everton deserved a point from their final Premier League game of the campaign.

He continued: "The boys put on a great show, knocked the ball about well in the first half and probably dominated the first 45 minutes.

"It was great to get a start. Probably in the last few months I have not played as much as I would have liked but the team have been playing well and I have probably not shown enough to get a start.

"So it was a wee bit of a surprise to get the start today but the manager gave me a chance.

"I could have possibly had a couple more - I had a couple of chances - but the ball broke to me and I took a good touch with my right and put it over the goalie."
