Danny Mullen raring to go

Danny Mullen says he's already raring to go for the new season despite St Mirren's season ending just 12 days ago.

The Buddies forward scored Saints' equaliser in the Play-Off Final against Dundee United after Nicky Clark had given the Tangerines the lead.

Saints went on to win the tie on penalties to preserve their Ladbrokes Premiership status. 

It completed a 'great escape' for the Buddies who looked sat five points adrift at the bottom of the league in February.

And following that dramatic end to the season, Danny admits can't wait for the new one to begin.

He said: "After a week or two off you just want to get back in.

I had a few days to relax but since then I have been keeping myself ticking over to make sure I am in the best possible shape when we come back.

"I think we are all looking forward to next season because of the way that we finished the year.

"It was a brilliant end to a difficult year but we managed to stay up and give ourselves a shot again next season.

"Hopefully we are able to continue the sort of form we showed towards the end into next year.

"I’m just counting down the days now and I am really looking forward to it."

The play-off final win came off the back of a big week for the forward following the birth of his first child - a daughter named Sophia. 

He confessed it had been a crazy, but 'perfect' couple of days.

It was a whirlwind few days but everything turned out perfectly," he said.

"Both mum and baby are doing really well and it has been an amazing few weeks for all of us. The goal rounded off a fantastic period for myself on a personal level and it couldn’t have gone any better.

"To get the goal in the Dundee United game was brilliant and to do it in front of such a support was incredible.

"Now it is time for me to kick on yet again when the season comes around."
