Today marks the final appearance for Europe-bound St Mirren’s Charles Dunne, Ryan Strain, and Keanu Baccus. A revered trio that has left an indelible mark in the top-six Premiership campaign and the heart of Scottish football culture.

After three years of diligent service at the SMiSA Stadium, defender Dunne is set to part ways with the club, joining Australian internationals, Strain and Baccus. Both Strain and Baccus have enlivened the field in Paisley for two remarkable years.

Their contracts are due to end this summer, with St Mirren offering new deals. Still, the allure of new opportunities seems to be drawing these talents elsewhere.

In addition to this reshuffling, their celebrated goalkeeper, Zach Hemming, ends his season-long loan and returns to Middlesbrough. However, rumours of a possible return next term have been hinted at by St Mirren’s manager, Stephen Robinson.

Hyeokkyu Kwon, the skilful midfielder, has also returned to his home club, Celtic, following a hamstring tear last month.

As the football season once again hums with transitions and new beginnings, Diarmuid O’Carroll, Saints assistant manager, announces, “Ryan, Keanu, Charles—along with the loan players—are all set to embark on new journeys.”

O’Carroll continues to praise Strain and Baccus stating, “Coming from Australia and Israel, respectively, they have been brilliant for us, and I’m sure they’ll succeed wherever they go next.”

Turning to a lighter note, James Bolton, poised to poise the party at Celtic Park this afternoon, is eager to break their eight-game losing streak against both halves of the Old Firm.

Both Celtic and St. Mirren have ample reasons to celebrate today, with Celtic basking in the Premiership trophy’s glow while St. Mirren relishes securing a spot in next season’s UEFA Conference League. A win today would be the perfect antidote to their recent run of losses.

Bolton, a staunch defender, is not one to shy away from a challenge. He urges his team to disrupt Celtic’s celebrations by stealing the show with a victory. Ending the winless streak against the Old Firm would be the icing on the cake.
