Since dìreach (just) is an adverb here, just like fhathast (still) and cuideachd (also), what justifies the different position of this word in the sentence?

For example: Mairi is just coming translates to Tha Màiri dìreach a' tighinn.

but

Mairi is also coming -> Tha Màiri a' tighinn cuideachd.

Mairi is still coming -> Tha Màiri a' tighinn fhathast.

Tapadh leibh.
