St Mirren Teammate Thinks Jamie McGrath Can Go 'Right To The Top'

St Mirren Teammate Thinks Jamie McGrath Can Go 'Right To The Top'

St Mirren teammate Ryan Flynn believes that Jamie McGrath has the ability to play in the Premier League.

Flynn was on the books at Liverpool as teenager, and also played with Sheffield United and Oldham before moving to St Mirren three years ago.

McGrath - who now has five caps for Ireland - joined St Mirren from Dundalk in January 2020. St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin said previously that the club is expecting interest in McGrath this January from "six or seven really big clubs".

Ryan Flynn on Jamie McGrath

"He’s definitely up there with the best I’ve ever played with," Flynn told Renfrewshire Live Sport.

"I think he can go really far.

"People are asking if he could play in the English Premier League and I honestly don’t see why not.

"I think the way he plays the game, for us and for Ireland, he just suits it and thrives in it. He actually seems to thrive more the bigger the game is.

"I think he’ll go really far. He’s not just a great player, he’s a top lad as well.

"It was actually nice to play with Jamie against St Johnstone. Normally I’d only be on in midfield when he was injured or I’d be going on when he was coming off!

"He’s got a good head on his shoulders, he’s switched on.

"I don’t want to put too much pressure on him, but I think he’ll go right to the top and every player in our training room is right behind him."
