SPL Fanzone: St Mirren

IT WAS fantastic, if surprising, news that Craig Samson landed a late call-up to the Scotland squad last week. He has been excellent for us this season, aside from one dodgy game against Hibs, and merited his place after the call-offs. Even though he didn’t make the matchday squad, he should still benefit from being there and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him included in future friendly squads.

It was also great to see Kenny McLean getting the young player of the month award. Like Samson, he’s been doing well for us lately and is now getting linked with moves elsewhere. The same goes for Paul McGowan but the pair are under lengthy contracts. If they do go, we’ll have benefited from some top-notch displays that have helped them earn their moves, while the sizeable transfer fees will also come in handy.
