Stevie Mallan scored a wonder goal for St Mirren at the weekend – and you should stop everything you’re doing to watch it right now.
The 21-year-old Buddies midfielder has been in sensational form since Jack Ross took over the club in October last year.
His return to prominence in the St Mirren midfield has been a big factor in the team’s recovery at the bottom of the Championship and they’re guaranteed to avoid automatic relegation with just one game of the regular campaign remaining.
They could even avoid the play-off spot completely if they manage to beat Hibs away at Easter Road this week or results elsewhere go for them.
Their weekend 5-0 win over rivals Raith was huge in their bid for safety – and Mallan was the inspiration behind that, scoring a hat-trick.
But it wasn’t just any hat-trick as it included a stunning 30-yard strike into the top corner:

How good is that from Mallan?
His other goals weren’t too bad either, firing home from a free-kick after finishing from close in the box:

In this form, Ross and St Mirren might have a tough job on keeping Mallan at the club over the coming years.
