Former Falkirk and Liverpool midfielder Ryan Flynn has joined St Mirren on a two-and-a-half-year deal, the Paisley club have announced.

The 29-year-old moves to the Ladbrokes Championship leaders after recently leaving English League One side Oldham.

Buddies boss Jack Ross told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted to have him on board.

“He’s a really good player with really good quality and pedigree.

“I’m excited to see him and I know he’s looking forward to it as well.”

Flynn, who began his career at Falkirk before joining Liverpool in 2005, said: “I’m just glad it is done now.

“I know Stephen [McGinn] really well so I know how things have gone for the last year.

“The boys have been flying really and the football they are playing is really good. I just want to get in and help as much as I can.”

Flynn failed to make the grade at Anfield and returned to Falkirk in 2009 after a loan spell at Wrexham.

He moved to Sheffield United in 2011 where he played alongside Buddies captain McGinn before joining Oldham in 2016.
