St Mirren goalkeeper Craig Samson admits he’s PLEASED that team-mate Kenny McLean is crocked ... because it might extend the talented midfielder’s stay in Paisley.
Samson is a huge fan of McLean and has tipped the 20-year-old starlet to win a big-money move to an English club, with the likes of Wolves and Ipswich Town said to be interested.
However, the shot-stopper is also eager to see McLean stay with the Buddies for as long as possible and reckons the knee injury which forced the Scotland Under-21 star to go under the knife last week could work in St Mirren’s favour.
Samson told Express Sports: “The manager had said that he expects to lose Kenny but, unfortunately for him, he’s had to have an operation the other day, which also happened to him last year.
“There was a real chance that he might have been away last January but he hurt his shoulder and now he has done his knee in.
