St Mirren chairman Gordon Scott has provided an assuring update for Buddies fans as uncertainty in Scottish football continues.

The SPFL is on an indefinite hiatus as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to cause havoc. It has caused widespread disruption to many major events, with Glastonbury the latest high-profile event to fall.

Nobody quite knows when the football will return, leading to financial worries that some clubs won’t be able to cope. Scott says though that whilst St Mirren will take a hit, the Paisley club are in a good financial position.

“This is clearly an unprecedented situation we are facing and we will continue to follow advice given from the Government and the Joint Response Group,” the Buddies chairman said in a club statement. “The club will monitor the situation on a weekly basis and will provide regular updates on and through our social media platforms.


“While the club will take a hit financially, I’d like to assure all our fans that, thanks to their support over the last four seasons, we are in a strong position to get through this difficult time and with your continued support and understanding we will see this through.

“Until we have clear advice on whether the rest of the season will continue or be brought to an end we cannot comment further.”

Assurance for fans

This at least will give supporters some sort of answers over St Mirren’s financial position. It seems as if they stand on good footing to deal with this crisis.

St Mirren currently have eight games to play as they aim for Premiership survival. It’s unknown if the Buddies will get to see this mission through in its entirety.

These are truly testing times but Scott’s comments are a good indication as to where the Paisley club are at present.
