ST MIRREN have announced the signing of Blackburn Rovers midfielder Brad Lyons until the end of the season - and Buddies fans have reacted hilariously to his arrival. 

The capture of the Northern Irishman was announced on the club's social media account earlier today as he became St Mirren's fourth signing of the window. 

Joining Vaclav Hladky, Mihai Popescu and Greg Tansey in making the switch to Paisley, Lyons innocently posed in his new kit - but fans have been quick to pick up on one particular element. 

The Gazette:

It's not the first time Lyons has posed with his glasses, doing the same with Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray 

Here are just some of the hilarious reactions to the news: 

However, many were quick to wish him luck on the move and expect big things from the midfielder. 

Lyons could make his St Mirren debut this weekend as Saints take on Alloa Athletic in the William Hill Scottish Cup.
