St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson says ‘very composed’ Millwall loanee Hayden Muller handled his Scottish Premiership debut well.

The 19-year-old centre-back made his St Johnstone bow in the weekend’s 1-1 draw with Motherwell at McDiarmid Park. Captain and defender Jason Kerr was injured for the match and is in a race for fitness ahead of the second leg of Thursday’s Europa League third round qualifier against Galatasaray.

Davidson said of the Millwall talent and Kerr’s injury: “When you are playing Thursdays and Sundays and at that intensity then it’s important that you take your chances.

“I asked for intensity before the game, I am disappointed not to win the game but I’ll take that level of performance.

“I think you can see that with Hayden, he is very composed and he has a good range of passing. I think he had a great game. I had to see him play at this level to see if he could handle it – and he did. Jason rocked his ankle last Thursday so hopefully he’ll be okay. We’ll need to see how it settles.”
