Jim Goodwin will miss his St Mirren side’s Scottish Premiership trip to Celtic this weekend after a positive Covid-19 test.
The Irishman received a false-positive test at the start of last season and St Mirren’s start to the 20/21 Premiership season was marred by Covid problems. Goodwin will be replaced by assistant manager Lee Sharp and goalkeeper coach Jamie Langfield at Celtic Park.
Saints have started the league season with a draw against Dundee and defeat to Hearts.
A statement reads: “St Mirren Football Club can confirm that manager Jim Goodwin will miss this weekend’s match away to Celtic after testing positive for Covid-19.
“Everyone at the club wishes Jim a full and speedy recovery. Lee Sharp and Jamie Langfield will take charge of first-team duties until the manager returns.”
