Wolves loanee Connor Ronan scored a stunning goal for St Mirren against Scottish champions Rangers on Sunday.

Ronan put his side 1-0 up early on, but Steven Gerrard’s men came back to win 2-1.

Speaking to the Glasgow Times in the aftermath of the game, Ronan said it was the best goal he has ever scored in his career.

When if he had ever scored a better goal, he replied: “Probably not. There was one at Blackpool that might be up there with it, but it was probably not in as big a game so I’d say that’s probably top so far.

“I wasn’t thinking there was a shot on as soon as I got the ball. When I got it I was looking up to play a pass, but there wasn’t much in front of me. That was my third of the season and it’s already the most I’ve scored in a season.

“Eamonn Brophy was there, but he was marked so I was just waiting for one of their centre-backs to step out. I was waiting and waiting and they didn’t come in the end so I took a hit.


“The wind was going that way as well and I stuck it in. I didn’t want the two goals I got the other week to just be a one-off or one good game. I wanted to keep the performances high and to add the goals and assists in there.”

Ronan is enjoying a fruitful loan spell in Scotland, playing regularly and scoring goals.

It is good to hear his comments there; he does not want to catch the eye one week and go missing the next.

He wants to be consistent, scoring and setting up as many goals as he can for his side.

The goal against Rangers was a stunner and he will hope there are more to come.
