LEE Hodson says he is happy to play wherever asked after he found himself deployed in the middle of the park for St Mirren.

The Rangers loanee has become a regular for Oran Kearney's Paisley side despite their struggles in the league.

Although a full back by trade, the Northern Irishman insists he will play wherever the Buddies need him.

The 27-year-old said: "I played in midfield when I was younger, so it’s not a position that I don’t know.

"I got asked to play there and for me, wherever I get asked to play, I try to do a job and do the best I can.

"As long as I’m playing week in week out and I can put in the performances, then I’ll give 100 per cent in that position and do the best I can."

The Rangers player is on a season-long loan at the club and admits he is unsure where his future lies after that. 

He continued: "As far as I’m aware the loan deal is until the end of the season.

"But that’s for me not to worry about and me to keep my head down and work hard.

"Obviously, that’s for the people higher up to decide, but I’m happy here. I”m happy playing football.

"I just want to get me head down and turn these performances into wins. The main thing is, stay here until the end of the season and make sure we’re in the Premiership next year."

Meanwhile, Hodson lamented his side's end product in their defeat to St Johnstone. 

The Paisley side lost on Boxing Day thanks to a late Tony Watt strike. 

And Hodson admits the dressing room was deflated by the way the losing goal was conceded.

He said:” I thought first half we created a few chances. I thought we had put a few balls into the box from set pieces, and three or four of them, just went straight through and went out for a throw in.

"When balls are balls are coming into the box like that, we need to put the quality of delivery in, and get a goal out of it.

"We would have taken a point and we would have taken four points out of six going into another big game against Killie today and tried to get another result.

"So the dressing room is thoroughly disappointed with how we conceded the goal and how we lost all three points."
