Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Connor Ronan scored a wonderful goal for St Mirren against Rangers today.

Playing in midfield for St Mirren, Ronan gave his side a surprise lead against Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

It was a long-range effort that flew into the top corner.

It was his third goal of the season, after scoring his first two on his debut against Aberdeen.

Despite falling a goal behind, Rangers recovered to come back and win 2-1.

It was another positive moment in what has been a productive loan spell for the former Republic of Ireland youth international.

According to Sky Sports, Ronan’s goal was the first from outside of the area for St Mirren this season.

What does the future hold for Ronan?

First and foremost, with the next international break arriving shortly, Ronan will surely have his eye on making the Republic of Ireland senior squad.

 

It is something he has not previously achieved, but his loan spell at St Mirren has been his most productive in terms of goals to games whilst playing in the UK.

Surely this has caught the eye of boss, Stephen Kenny.

If he continues to impress for club and maybe country, then it may tempt Wolves to try him at a higher level side.

This could be a team competing at the top of the Scottish Premiership, or possibly the Championship in England.

Although Ronan’s future playing for Wolves does not seem to be totally unfeasible, appearances for the first team appear unlikely for the time being.
