Wolves midfielder Connor Ronan says he is enjoying his time on loan at St Mirren.

The Irishman scored twice on Sunday as St Mirren beat Aberdeen, netting his first goals for the club.

In an interview with the Daily Record, he says the loan move has been ‘perfect’ so far.

His manager Jim Goodwin recently praised him and tipped him for a senior international call-up before too long.

“Someone from Wolves was there to watch the Aberdeen game, so they’re always in close contact which is nice. It’s not a case that if you go out on loan you are forgotten about,” he said.

“They’re in touch every week, asking ‘are you playing this week?’ and ‘how was training?’. “In the case of coming here, they said it was up to me where I wanted to go because I was injured at the time.

“So it was a case of getting fit and that was the main factor. Wolves were happy to let me come here and it was perfect, really.


“To be honest I don’t think it was one of my best performances in the first half, certainly not since I’ve been here, but a goal just gives you that boost and the confidence to go on and do more.

“Even when that second one goes in, you know you just want to keep getting on the ball. Football is a confidence game and if you’re scoring goals and picking up assists then you’re going to want the ball all the time.”

Ronan’s two-goal display earned him a place in the division’s team of the week and deservedly so.

It’s great to see Ronan building his fitness up and showing what he can do on loan.

It might be the case that his long-term future lies away from Molineux, but he’s clearly getting a lot of support from the club while he’s away.
