Loan star Paul Dummett knew a return to St Mirren was the right move ... when he found himself jumping up and down in front of his telly while watching the Buddies beat Celtic.
Dummett, who spent the first half of this season on loan at Saints, was reduced to the role of stay-at-home spectator last Sunday as Danny Lennon’s shock troops secured their place in the Scottish Communities League Cup Final.
And the 21-year-old Newcastle United full-back has revealed he was on cloud nine as he watched the Hampden heroes pull off Mission Improbable.
Dummett, who agreed a transfer deadline-day return to Paisley on another loan deal that will keep him at the club for the rest of the season, told Express Sports: “I knew St Mirren had a massive cup tie against Celtic and I really didn’t want to miss it, so I arranged to come up to Glasgow for the game.
“I had my suit on and was just about to leave the house when I got a phone call from Newcastle telling me to get into training.
