St Johnstone cup final goal hero Steven Anderson leaves club

Club legend Anderson is leaving Saints after 16 seasons.

St Johnstone stalwart Steven Anderson is leaving the club after 16 seasons.

Anderson is one of seven players leaving Saints in the coming weeks at the end of their contracts.

The 34-year-old defender was a key player for Tommy Wright’s team over the years, scoring the opener as the Saints ended their wait to win the Scottish Cup in 2014.

Anderson spent last season on loan at Raith Rovers in League One after finding first-team football hard to come by in Perth.

The centre-half departs having played over 400 games for St Johnstone domestically and in Europe.

Danny Swanson, Max Johnstone, Ross Callachan, David McMillan, Euan O’Reilly and Shaun Struthers are also heading for the exit door.

Long-serving midfielder Liam Craig, left-back Callum Booth and striker Chris Kane have extended their deals with the club until January 2021.

St Johnstone are currently without a permanent manager, with Alec Cleland filling in as caretaker boss following Tommy Wright’s exit.
