St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin will miss the Paisley club's Scottish Premiership game at Celtic Park tomorrow after testing positive for Covid-19.

Buddies assistant Lee Sharp and fellow coach Jamie Langfield will lead the team in his absence.

A Saints spokesperson read: "Everyone at the club wishes Jim a full and speedy recovery.

"Lee Sharp and Jamie Langfield will take charge of first-team duties until the manager returns."

St Mirren ended a 31-year wait for an away victory over Celtic with a 2-1 win in Glasgow last season.

This season, they have one point from their opening two top-flight fixtures and were knocked out of the Scottish League Cup at the last-16 stage by Livingston last Saturday.

After tomorrow's trip to Celtic Park, St Mirren's next fixture is at home to St Johnstone on Sunday, August 29.
