Jack Baird has left St Mirren, the club have today confirmed.

The central-defender came through the youth system in Paisley, making his debut aged just 18 away to Hamilton in a Scottish Premiership match.

Baird would become a regular in the Championship for St Mirren, helping them survive in 2017 before helping them lift the second tier title in 2018.

Making himself a regular in the 2018-19 season in which St Mirren survived their return to the Premiership, Baird was loaned out to Greenock Morton last season as he looked for regular action.


His last appearance in a black and white shirt came last year during a League Cup group stage match between St Mirren and Albion Rovers.

With no appearances so far this term either, it has been agreed for Baird to leave the Buddies by mutual consent. Joe Shaughnessy and Conor McCarthy are Jim Goodwin’s preferred pairing at centre-back for now.

St Mirren return to action a week on Saturday when they face Hibs at home in the Scottish Premiership.
