St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson has provided an update on new signing Craig Bryson after the midfielder’s move from Aberdeen.

The experienced battler joined the McDiarmid Park club earlier this month after his time at the Dons was cut short. He will be a Saint for the duration of the 2020/21 season as he looks to put a frustrating Pittodrie spell behind him.

Bryson wasn’t available at the weekend though as his new club lost 2-0 to Livingston. Goals from Scott Tiffoney and Alan Forrest sent St Johnstone to 10th in the table as their hard luck in front of goal continues.

Boss Davidson has provided an update on Bryson, saying last Saturday came too soon for the midfielder: “We thought that Craig was maybe just too short for it.

“He has obviously missed quite a bulk of training so hopefully by next week he will be available.

“I don’ think we were as dominant in the game as we have been in the previous two games. But when you come to places like Livingston, you have to take your chances.

“You can’t give away two poor goals and give them something to hang onto. Give them credit, they worked extremely hard and they make it very hard for you.

“But for me the goals could have been avoided.”
