joined Scottish Premiership side

St Mirren

as a free agent on Friday, five months after leaving his previous club



The 29-year-old has joined the training ground this week after keeping fit with Schalke in recent months and he is set to play in Saturday’s Scottish Premiership game against St Johnstone.

“He’s not far away at all and I’m absolutely delighted,”




“I was just speaking to a couple of the staff thereafter training and we are all really pleasantly surprised at what great condition he is in.

“Collin is in constant dialogue with the sports scientist to make sure we are not asking too much of him but he looks really sharp at the moment.”

Scotland striker

Eamonn Brophy

has been signed alongside Quaner to add versatility to Jim Goodwin’s attacking line.

“I think we have the fourth-best defensive record in the league but offensively we are one of the poorer teams,”

he said


“Collectively as a unit we need to do better when we get into the final third, but our main aim is to work the goalkeeper more.

“We are having more shots than most teams, we are getting into the opposition box more than the majority of teams, but we are not putting the ball in the net enough.

“Defensively, I’m happy. If we can sort out the top end of the pitch then all of a sudden we become a very good team.”
