BUDDIES boss Danny Lennon last night admitted that any move to sign trialist goalkeeper Grant Adam must remain on hold while the fate of the Rangers newco is decided.
The Ibrox club’s future is still uncertain after SPL clubs voted to boot them out of the top flight.
And that decision has implications for Lennon as he looks to complete his squad ahead of the start of the 2012/13 season.
Former Rangers starlet Adam, 21, has been on trial with St Mirren but it remains far from certain that he will get the chance to sign a deal with the Paisley club, where his older brother Charlie was once a fans’ favourite.
Lennon said: “Grant is still with us and he’s been doing fine but the situation with regards to signing players hasn’t changed.
“Our hands are tied until the financial situation at the club, and the Scottish game in general, becomes clearer, so we won’t be doing any business for now.”
A goalkeeping vacancy arose at St Mirren earlier this summer when former St Johnstone shot-stopper Graeme Smith left the Buddies.
That has left Craig Samson as the only experienced goalie on the books at the Paisley club.
