St Mirren's Murray set for summer departure

St Mirren veteran Hugh 'Shuggy' Murray could be on his way out of the Paisley club at the end of the season.

The 33-year old midfielder, who has been a part of the Buddies senior squad since 1997, is set to move on in the summer after becoming the clubs games record holder with 467.

Manager Danny Lennon indicated that Murray's departure was certainly on the cards and wished him well for whatever he chooses to do in the future.

"Shuggy has set himself in the record books at a club he has served terrifically well for 15 years," Lennon said.

"In the modern era, it is rare for a player to spend his whole career at the one club. I think that is to be praised and commended.

"Shuggy has now thrown down the gauntlet to our emerging young players, such as Jason Naismith and Thomas Reilly, encouraging them to be the next players to serve the club impeccably well in the years to come and to achieve legendary status at a club that is steeped in 135 years of rich footballing heritage.

"We wish Shuggy every success in the future and believe he will continue to make a positive impact on Scottish football in the years ahead."
