ST MIRREN boss Oran Kearney says the club are still in control of their own relegation destiny. 

The Paisley side were brushed aside with ease by champions Celtic last night in a 4-0 demolition in Glasgow. 

A brace from Oliver Burke, a Scott Sinclair penalty, and a late Timothy Weah goal was the difference between the sides. 

And to make matters worse for the Buddies, Dundee's unexpected win away to Hearts sent St Mirren to the bottom of the Premiership table. 

However, Kearney brushed aside any mention of the Dundee result and insisted the club's future remains in their hands. 

He said: "The last thing I want to be doing in January time is checking scores or worrying about agendas of other teams.

"I can't control what Dundee, Hearts or Hibs or anyone else do.

"The only thing we can control is our players and us to get points.

"We are all in control of our own destiny."

Meanwhile, Kearney also revealed defender Lee Hodson could be out for "weeks possibly months" with an ankle injury.
