New striker Junior Morias has revealed he can’t wait to get his first taste of Scottish football after sealing his move to St Mirren. 

The 24-year-old joined the Buddies on a two-year deal from Northampton Town for an undisclosed fee last week.  

And, ahead of tomorrow's match against Rangers, Morias has told Gazette Sport that fellow new signing and former teammate Sam Foley encouraged him to move to Paisley. 

He said: “The first day meeting the boys has been good. A good positive session.

"Everyone has been nice and welcoming. It was good to see Sam Foley again and big John [Jonathan Obika]. It’s sunk in already and the hard work starts now. I’m just looking forward to tomorrow.

“I spoke to Sam a few days ago and just asked what it’s like - he said it’s great. The manager, the staff, everyone around the place is good. It’s nice to hear things like that and, meeting the boys, he was 100 per cent right. Fingers crossed it can be a nice easy start against Rangers.”

Morias is hungry to fight for and keep hold of the striking berth spot in Jim Goodwin’s new-look starting lineup and he’s vowed to be physical and harass defenders when not on the ball. 

But his primary aim is to satisfy his love of putting the ball in the back of the net.

He continued: “I didn’t come here to sit around and just make up the numbers. I came here to be successful in everything I do. I always put in 110 per cent and I’m just hungry for success. I don’t want to be successful, I need to be successful. I’ve heard so many good things about this club and it matches my desires.

“I don’t give defenders a break, physically I'm strong. My main thing is I love scoring goals. I hold the ball up well and bully defenders no matter how tall you are. I’m just a nightmare really who works hard for the team. I’m a bully but in a good way.”
