St Mirren boss Danny Lennon has swooped to sign Celtic midfielder Graham Carey on a two year deal.

The Dubliner has been at Parkhead for the last six years having come through the youth set up.

Loan spells at Bohemians, St Mirren and more recently Huddersfield have since the Ireland under-21 international impress impressed during a loan spell with the club last season

Speaking to the St Mirren official website, an excited Lennon had this to say about his latest signing “I’m absolutely delighted to get another quality intelligent player into the club”.

“He is left-sided which gives us the necessary balance.

“Graham has cut the cord with a big club in Celtic so it shows you the progression that St Mirren Football Club are trying to make.

“I think the facilities that we have here and the quality of the signings to date were influential in Graham coming here as he did have one or two other things in the line.

“We are very thankful for Celtic in their part as we are to Graham’s agent who also played a big part and of course to our own chairman, Stewart Gilmour.”
