No, I'd say it was totally true!

Why else would they sell him half way through the season?

He was left on the bench 8 times in the first half of that season before they punted him and he scored only 9 times in open play.

They got shot of him and brought in a far cheaper replacement who scored more goals in less games!

Possibly an alleged racist tweet ? :rolleyes:    https://www.theguardian.com/football/2013/jan/11/leigh-griffiths-wolves-racist-tweet

The FACT is he finished the season as joint top scorer.

A feat all the more remarkable when you consider how many were scored from substitue appearances !  Exceptional strike rate i would say . ..... still a dick though .

FACT (see, I can use capitals as well), he was on the bench 8 times.

You are saying that they benched him 8 times for a tweet he hadn't yet made? :wacko:

FACT, Gavin Reilly was our top scorer.... and we let him go cos he isn't good enough!

9 goals in 18 starts in the 3rd tier of English football with a massive club that won the league.....  hardly "remarkable" nor "exceptional"

FACT, he was struggling!

Eh , they got rid of him after the tweet , he had been playing and scoring regularly before that .   I never said anything about them benching him for it ... those are your words.

Loved your "remarkable" and "exceptional " bit ( see i can use inverted commas as well :rolleyes: )

And, he doesn't play for us anymore. 

The clue is in the title- GENERAL St Mirren Discussion. For me and others , ex players come under this bracket.

We all apologise for discussing Gavin Reilly.

In future, we will all pm you with our posts/threads and seek your permission before we post them on the forum.

No need to apologise, just don't see the sense in discussing a player that flattered to deceive. 

But obviously we have now discussed him and moving on.

If you aren’t bothered about him then don’t read the thread.

I’d take him back in a heartbeat. Who was the last st mirren player you knew of that scored 30 goals in a season at any level???

I’m sure it was 22 goals he scored.

That being said, I think the last player to hit a similar number was Barry Lavety. So indeed it’s rare for us to have a player smashing home goals like that.

It's my democratic right to read and quote what I like.

You want to blabber on about players who did absolutely nothing for us you batter on.
