Ryan Strain and Charles Dunne are among four players leaving St Mirren following the expiration of their contract.

Veteran midfielder Dunne signed for the Buddies in June 2021, and went on to make 91 appearances, scoring one goal.

The 31-year-old was set to leave the club last summer but had agreed a one-year extension.

Strain made the move to Paisley in June 2022, following a spell in Israel at Maccabi Haifa, and the 27-year-old made 64 appearances, scoring five goals.

Keanu Baccus, who joined St Mirren from Western Sydney Wanderers in July 2022 and became the first ever Saint to play at a World Cup after being called up by Australia for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, will also be departing the club.

The midfielder leaves for Mansfield Town, having made 72 appearances at the Buddies with four goals.

New Zealand striker Alex Greive, who made 76 appearances and scored nine goals after joining from Birkenhead United in January 2022, will also be released having spent the last few months on loan at Dundee United.

Loan players Jaden Brown, Zach Hemming and Hyeokkyu Kwon will also depart the club, returning to their respective parent clubs.

A club statement read: “Sadly, the club says goodbye to Keanu Baccus, Charles Dunne, Alex Greive and Ryan Strain as all leave the club following the expiry of their contracts.

“All four have made telling contributions and we would like to place on record our sincere thanks to all for their respective efforts during their time at St Mirren.

“Everyone at the club wishes them the best of luck in their future careers.”
