  1. Davidson concern for MacPhersonpublished at 18:22

    Cammy MacPherson had to come off injured after seven minutes

    St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson admits "it sounds a bit silly" saying he is pleased with much of side's performance in a 4-0 defeat by Rangers.

    "First half, I thought we played well," he tells BBC Scotland. "Rangers had the majority of the ball, but we defended well as a group and worked extremely hard and at times when we transitioned to the other end was quite good.

    "Second half, we tried to have a little go and put bodies forward to put them under a bit of pressure."

    While Davidson was disappointed with the goals conceded "I have seen big improvements in the team going forward".

    St Johnstone lost midfielder Cammy MacPherson early on to injury and, although Davidson does not know the extent of the problem he says: "It's not great when someone goes down with nobody near him."

    However, he was impressed with replacement Daniel Phillips, the former Watford midfielder making his debut. "I thought he did very well - I am quite excited to bring him and get him properly fit," Davidson adds.

    Antonio Colak scored against St Johnstone

    Clive Lindsay, BBC Scotland

    In the early stages of Rangers' 4-0 win over St Johnstone, the game appeared to be following a similar pattern to the home side's opening two victories over Livingston and Kilmarnock, with Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side labouring to break down a packed defence.

    However, once they got their noses in front, the Ibrox side were a different animal.

    Van Bronckhorst made four changes, with winger Ryan Kent and defender James Sands missing through injury, and the way they finished with a flourish with two substitutes finding the net showed Rangers' added strength in depth this season.

    In summer signing Antonio Colak, in particular, they have found the goal poacher they needed with Alfredo Morelos still viewed short of match fitness following injury.

    St Johnstone will look to an early miss by striker Theo Bair at 0-0 - and there were suggestions of offside in Colak's goal - as manager Callum Davidson quickly consigns the experience to history.

    Considering they have beaten Rangers only once in 15 meetings and lost in the latest four, anything taken from Ibrox would have been a bonus.

  3. Saints defender Mitchell relishing Ibrox troppublished at 12:04 12 August

    Alex Mitchell hopes his "old fashioned" qualities can help St Johnstone repel Rangers at Ibrox.

    Saints travel to Glasgow on Saturday, having picked up their first Scottish Premiership win of the season last week against Motherwell.

    And Mitchell, 20, said: "I think I'm a bit of an old-fashioned player. My coaches say I'm the type that's a bit of a dying breed.

    "I like to defend, as has been made clear, and I feel like I bring leadership qualities talking-wise. It's a quality I'm quite proud of.

    "I remember watching Rangers in the Europa League final so to watch that and then have a chance to play against them at Ibrox is a big opportunity for myself. I'm really looking forward to the challenge."

    "He's got loads of energy," the Saints boss said. "He gets snapped into tackles and he's good on the ball.

    "For me, he's a young player with a big future so we'll see how he develops."

  13. Dogged St Johnstone seal winpublished at 20:25 6 August

    St Johnstone, who won 2-1 away to Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday, have never lacked doggedness.

    For 90 minutes, they defended stoutly, with Andy Considine and Alex Mitchell particularly compelling. They also found a rare flourish of attacking incision, and manager Callum Davidson needs to see more of that kind of panache.

    As sweet as the victory will taste, the St Johnstone boss will be irked at the concession of a second late set-piece goal in as many weeks.

  14. Davidson delighted with May winnerpublished at 20:23 6 August

    St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson spoke to BBC Scotland following his side's 2-1 win away to Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership.

    "First half, we played really well, we looked to get out and play, and we scored a really good goal," he said.

    "Second half, we started sloppily, and the game ebbed and flowed. I'm delighted Stevie May has come on and got us the three points."

  16. More experienced Matthews prepares for Fir Park returnpublished at 20:16 5 August

    Remi Matthews says he has "a lot more experience" as he returns to a ground where he once lost four goals to a single player.

    The St Johnstone goalkeeper, 28, joined on loan from Crystal Palace last month, having previously been on loan at Hamilton Academical from Norwich City.

    On his first trip to Fir Park in 2016, Matthews was in an Accies team beaten 4-2 by a Louis Moult-inspired Well, the striker scoring all of their goals.

    "I was young at the time, I was new to that sort of loan experience," said Matthews. "I have got a lot more experience coming into this football club.

    "When I was at Hamilton I really enjoyed it and I really enjoyed playing in the Scottish league and that was a big factor in why I wanted to return."
