Shuggy stays a Saint

Last updated : 17 February 2009 By Stuart Gillespie
A few months ago it didn't look as if Murray would be staying much longer as he was out of the team and his form has dipped. However, since replacing the suspended Gary Mason he has been in fine form and fully merits his new deal.

Shuggy has been with the club since 1996 and had a testimonial game in 2007 against Derby County. He's the club's most successful player, having won three trophies - two first division titles and the League Challenge Cup.

His finest hour came in 1998 when he scored the only goal of the game at Forthbank as Saints beat Stirling Albion to stay in the first division. It's arguably a goal that kept the club in business due to the perilous financial situation it found itself in.

Not quite so memorable is the time he left the club in 2002 after he turned down a new contract, but after he failed to find a new club he quickly returned and has been here ever since.
