Similar to Hourihane he'd be best used in a midfield three with two more defensive midfielders doing the more physical stuff for him.

Well worth a look though if more senior players pull out of the June camp.

Is Hourihane meant to be a good comparison? 

Any potential midfielder coming into this Ireland team, I don't need to hear the word "invisible". Enough of them. 

I won't hold my breath so. 

Not saying Hourihane is a positive or a negative comparison...just that they're similar players. For a 24 year old St. Mirren player to be compared to a Premier League/Championship player is probably a compliment. But if you're expecting him to be the next Wes Hoolahan you're probably going to be disappointed.

As you say, don't hold your breath - but he's probably worth a look in an Ireland squad at some point and he will move on to a bigger club than St Mirren in time.

He’s an attacking midfielder in the mold of Kevin De Bruyne.

That better? 

How about an advanced mid who doesn't go missing in games and strives to be on the ball as often as possible. I'd be happy with that for starters.

Has to be in the next squad. His form deserves it and Kenny knows him only too well. No brainer.

McGrath, McCarthy and Doyle-Hayes all starting for St Mirren in the Scottish Cup semi final at 2pm. It's on BBC1 Scotland which should be available to anyone with a Sky or Freesat box.

16th of the season for McGrath, ten minutes after coming off the bench.

He didn't score in his first eleven games of the season so he actually has 16 in his last 32 games.
“We did let Mr. Felder sing it, he sang it dozens of times over the span of a week over and over again. It simply didn’t come up to band standards.”

Actually agree, Scottish league is tougher than many make it out to be. Big game experience going to parkhead and ibrox. Also, if St mirren win the cup, european football. 

A different setting and a manager like Goodwin would really help him.
Shades of Stokes move to Falkirk about it.  The loan move for McNamara to St Johnstone really helped him too. Be nice to see Parrott go up there and get a few goals.

Not one of his better performances tonight. Took his pens well though and his free kick delivery for Shaughnessy's goal was excellent also.

Will definitely move on to a higher level than St Mirren this summer or next. He's a similar player to Conor Hourihane, both in a positive and a negative sense.

Big game for st mirren. Rode their luck tonight, they didn't play well at all. Some composure from mcgrath for the two penalties. 


He was involved in all three goals tonight.

You'd be hard pressed to find an Irish player who had a great, or even good, season but he's undoubtedly one.
