Saints goalkeeper Samuel McBurnie played for an 'Anglo-Irish' team in a trial match against a 'home Irish' team on the 5th January 1910.


Ukrainian legend Sergei Baltacha also had a spell at Love Street as coach during the late 1990's. Sergei won 47 caps for the Soviet Union in an illustrious career.

Saints have been linked with a few top named internationalist over the years most famously Ronaldhino, who was close to signing on loan during March 2001.
He was due to sign for Paris St.Germain at the end of the season, and his club, Gremio, were willing to allow him to come to Paisley for three months to gain match fitness folowing an injury.
Unfortunately delays in international clearance due to a problem with his passport, meant that the deal fell through.

In the late 1980's Oleg Blokhin and Anatoly Demyanenko were amongst a group of four Soviet Union players who were lined up for a move to Love Street. Unfortunately red tape again caused the deal to fall through.
