St Mirren taunt rivals on social media after commentator’s ‘Aberdeen rejects’ jibe SNS Group

St Mirren have hit back after two of their players were dismissed as “Aberdeen rejects” following their 3-1 win at Pittodrie on Wednesday.

Curtis Main scored a double either side of Bojan Miovski’s equaliser before Declan Gallagher sealed the game on the 90th minute.

The victory moves Stephen Robinson’s men into fourth as the Dons continue their freefall out of the top six and into seventh after a horrendous run of results.

After the game finished, commentator and Aberdeen club legend, Willie Miller said the fact both goal scorers were “rejects” would make the defeat even worse for the home support.

The comments were in reference to both players having had disappointing spells in the north east with Gallagher being released last summer and Main two years ago.

But on Thursday morning St Mirren hit back with a string on tweets mocking the tag.

In their first post they showed highlights of Main’s goals and celebrations with the caption “not bad for a reject” before tweeting a picture of Declan Gallagher drinking from a Starbucks coffee cup with “Aberdeen reject” written were his name should be.

Forward Main joined the Dons from Motherwell in 2019 and scored 7 goals in 42 appearances before being allowed to move to MK Dons in February 2021.

Scotland international Gallagher left Motherwell for Pittodrie in May 2021 but only managed 31 games before being released by former manager Jim Goodwin at the start of this season.

The 3-1 victory on Wednesday moves the Paisley side four points ahead of Aberdeen despite having played a game less.

Following the game Miller said: “The result is bad enough for Aberdeen, but when you think it was two rejects that put them to the sword, that’s just torture for the fans.”
