ST MIRREN chairman Stewart Gilmour today announced that the Paisley club is up for sale.

Five shareholders who own a combined 52% stake in the Buddies - including Gilmour, vice-chairman George Campbell, club secretary Allan Marshall, director Bryan McAusland and Evelyn Purves - widow of former director Jim Purves - want to sell their 98,000 shares in a single block portion.

Saints are one of a handful of Scottish clubs who are debt-free following the sale of their stadium at Love Street to supermarket giant Tesco.

Gilmour said: "The decision to sell our shares was not taken lightly. All the directors involved in the consortium feel we have achieved our objectives of making the club debt-free.

At least it should be a club who isn't hit by the financial crisis that has affected a lot of Scottish Clubs.

No c-nt will buy that sh-te Scottish football is dead

A club debt-free and running within their means, with a new stadium and training facilities?

I'm sure there will be a few interested parties.

St. Mirren are a blueprint of how a small SPL club should be run.

They were going out of business a couple of years ago. They are debt free because they sold their ground to Tesco and had their new stadium built for them.A couple of years down the line they will be back where they were.

Hardly a blueprint of how clubs should be run-- unless they can keep on selling their stadium every 4 or 5 years.

There will be some rich "entrepreneur" craving fame/celebrity and wanting his face plastered over magazines,papers, tv & radio& computer screens who will see the Saints as a cheap way of doing it.

Throw £5M at them & they will be challenging for third place.
