WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS
Jack Ross hailed his St Mirren heroes as history boys as he celebrated the side’s Championship success.
The Saints boss struggled for superlatives to describe the team after Saturday’s draw with Livingston confirmed their return to the top flight after three years away.
Saints will be crowned d this weekend when the title party rolls back in to town for the trophy presentation at the game against Morton.
And the gaffer insists his troops should savour every moment.
“These boys are in the history books now for r this club and that is a brilliant achievement”, Ross said, “To do it in front of this crowd was fitting.
“I must admit I was a bit emotional at the end. I think it was just a real happiness for what we have done and I am so pleased for the group and the supporters.
“They have backed me throughout a long period, and a difficult period, so I was pleased we were able to reward them with a day like that. These next couple of weeks will be really enjoyable for us because we will enjoy every minute of every celebration.”
St Mirren simply ran away with the title this season following a breathtaking turnaround in fortunes for a club that this time last year were bottom of the Championship and staring relegation in the face. But Ross Ro admits he was just r relieved to get the job don done.
He added: “I think th the initial feeling is re relief for me when the fi final whistle went. But b beyond that I have a hu huge amount of pride in that th group of players. “W “What they have given for me no not just this season, but over the past 16 months, is outstanding.
“We were very clear from day one in pre-season that this is what we wanted to achieve.
“It will be the same next season and we will be setting targets from the moment we begin our work again.”
