  1. 'Humble' Baccus focused on Buddiespublished at 11:30

    Midfielder Keanu Baccus says he will continue to "do my best for St Mirren" despite heightened speculation over his future after his World Cup performances.

    Australia assistant Rene Meulensteen this week tipped Baccus to win a move to one of Scotland's biggest clubs or leagues in England, France or Spain, but the 24-year-old has insisted on repaying the Paisley club.

    "I definitely have career aspirations," said Baccus, who signed a two-year contract in the summer.

    "I have loved every minute at the club and I'm still here. I will take it game by game and see where it takes me.

    "That's what I was doing before so I should probably keep doing that and not worry about the future. I will do my best for St Mirren first – everything happened off the back of that so I will continue that.

    "I grew up in a family that's very humble and they like to stay humble. Going to the World Cup made me want more. If anything it made me even hungrier to push and do well for the club.

    "I want to be back playing games and playing every minute that I can."

  3. 'Surreal how good Messi is' - Baccus cherishes World Cup adventurepublished at 18:00 7 December

    Keanu Baccus says his introduction to Scottish football made him "ready" for the World Cup.

    The midfielder, 24, joined St Mirren from Western Sydney Wanderers in the summer and has made 15 appearances for the Paisley side, scoring twice.

    After making Australia's squad in Qatar, Baccus featured in all three group games - against France, Tunisia and Denmark - and started the last-16 defeat to Argentina.

    "The last few months in Scotland have really made me ready for moments like that," Baccus said.

    "I felt like I was ready and I felt like I've worked really hard for that moment. I didn't feel any nerves. I worked hard and did what I could. I did my best."

    Lionel Messi scored in Argentina's 2-1 win against the Socceroos and Baccus says "it's surreal how good he actually is".

    "I was trying to watch over my shoulder to see where he was and what he was doing all the time," Baccus added.

    "A special player to watch. Amazing to play against him."

  4. 'Baccus living my dream and doing Buddies proud'published at 11:53 6 December

    Andrew Christie, Misery Hunters podcast, external

    Despite being well into my thirties, with zero footballing ability and knees that make a sound some have compared to “a washing machine full of pound coins”, I have never truly given up hope of being the first St Mirren player to appear at a World Cup.

    Although Australia’s Keanu Baccus callously tore this dream from me, I - like countless other Buddies - tuned in with great delight to see the 24-year-old midfielder line up against Lionel Messi in his side’s round of 16 tie with Argentina.

    Tasked with keeping Messi quiet, Baccus shone – the midfielder a key part of Graham Arnold’s compact, organised system. Alongside Celtic’s Aaron Mooy, Baccus was resolute, he was robust, and he was bold both on and off the ball, leaving Argentina frustrated for long periods of the game.

    While it was ultimately not to be for the Socceroos, their battling performance has rightfully earned the squad a host of new admirers around the world, with Baccus chief among them.

    While his days in the black and white of St Mirren may be numbered, the sight of Baccus’ barely contained smile as he announced himself to the wider footballing world is something that will live long in the memory of us all.

  5. Mackay 'had the option' of Buddies published at 11:22 5 December

    Former Celtic defender Malky Mackay has admitted he nearly signed for St Mirren instead of the Glasgow giants when leaving Queen's Park.

    Mackay, who went on to play for Norwich City, West Ham and Watford and has since been in management, told the tale to Ross County's social media channels, external in a sit-down interview.

    "When the opportunity came to go to Celtic, there was another opportunity to go to St Mirren and be involved in their first team," said Mackay, who made the move to Celtic Park in 1993.

    "I knew going to Celtic I was going to be involved in their reserves so it was an option.

    "There wasn't that much financial difference but just to be in that position, you have to back yourself as opportunities like Celtic don't come about often."

  7. 'Baccus' gamble has paid off'published at 13:40 2 December

    We asked you Buddies if you believe you can keep a hold of Keanu Baccus as his stock continues to rise at the World Cup...

    Steve: As a St Mirren season-ticket holder, I said after watching Baccus for just six games that he would be away in the January window. The boy was - and is - that good. After joining Australia at the World Cup and taking part in all three games so far, a move is even more likely now. Good luck to the lad. He took a gamble and moved halfway around the world.

  8. Can Buddies keep Baccus? - Have your saypublished at 11:53 1 December

    You've heard that Stephen Robinson is braced for offers for some of his star assets, so are you worried, Buddies?

    Can you keep a hold of Keanu Baccus after his World Cup exploits? What about midfield maestro, Mark O'Hara?

    Let us know your thoughts on St Mirren's ability to keep players in Paisley, here.

  9. 'Hopefully I can keep squad together' - Robinson wary of interest in starspublished at 11:33 1 December

    St Mirren manager Stephen Robinson is prepared for the possibility of interest in some of his players in the upcoming transfer windows, including Australian World Cup star Keanu Baccus.

    "As a club like St Mirren, you're always open to clubs looking at your so-called better players," Robinson said. "You're always at the mercy of teams with more money."

    In the summer, Robinson brought in now first-team regulars such as Baccus, Jonah Agunga, Trevor Carson, Declan Gallagher, Alex Gogic, Mark O'Hara and Ryan Strain.

    "We've got some very good players," he added. "We only changed 30% of the squad in the summer and all the boys we've brought in have attracted attention.

    "We've got a boy at the World Cup who is doing everyone proud, so our recruitment has been good.

    "We need to do more of that, but it probably won't be in the January window, it will be more towards the summer.

    "Other clubs will strengthen, but we believe we've put a good squad together and hopefully I can keep that whole squad together."

  10. St Mirren 'won't be able to strengthen' in Januarypublished at 17:54 30 November

    St Mirren manager Stephen Robinson says he is unlikely to have the funds to bring in new signings in January.

    The Buddies are seventh in the Premiership, just four points behind third-place Aberdeen in the race for European places.

    "I think we won't be able to strengthen," said Robinson. "The financial constraints at the club probably dictate that at this moment in time.

    "We've got a couple of more experienced boys who might not have had the game time they wanted, so we may have to look at that to balance the books.

    "But we've got a good squad. Unless things change or a lot of people leave the club, we'll probably remain as we are, which we're happy with.”

  11. Premiership players star as Australia reach last 16published at 17:33 30 November

    A quartet of Scottish Premiership players had starring roles as Australia reached the World Cup knockout rounds for just the second time in their history with a stunning 1-0 win over Denmark.

    Celtic's Aaron Mooy played the full 90 minutes, as did Hearts' Kye Rowles and Aziz Behich of Dundee United, while St Mirren's Keanu Baccus came on at half-time.

    Rowles formed an impenetrable partnership with Aberdeen-born Harry Souttar - the "the centre-halves were the standouts" noted BBC pundit Jermaine Jenas - while Hearts duo Cammy Devlin and Nathaniel Atkinson were unused substitutes for the Socceroos, whose only previous foray beyond the groups came in 2006.

    Matthew Leckie scored the decisive goal in the second half and Australia held firm to spark delirium.

    Hibs forward Martin Boyle was ruled out of the tournament through injury just days before Australia's group opener, but didn't let the fact he was on crutches dampen his mood.

    For the second game in a row, manager Graham Arnold brought Boyle to the centre of a post-match huddle as the Aussies got the celebrations started.

    Arnold's men finish second behind France on goal difference, and will face Argentina in the last 16 on Saturday.

  12. St Mirren 'so proud' of Baccus - Robinsonpublished at 12:49 30 November

    St Mirren fans can’t get enough of Keanu Baccus’ World Cup exploits with Australia. And even Buddies boss Stephen Robinson’s partner has been caught up in the excitement.

    Midfielder Baccus has featured as a late substitute in both group outings for far for the Socceroos, who can reach the round of 16 with a point against Denmark on Wednesday, providing Tunisia don't beat France.

    "Everybody at the club is so proud of him,” said Robinson. “My partner has been cheering when he comes on the pitch, it's great.

    "He'll come back full of confidence, raring to go and we'll benefit from that.

    "He's a super boy. In football, the good things don't always happen to the nice kids, but he's such a super boy and I'm so proud of him."

  13. Paisley the place to be for aspiring internationalspublished at 14:26 29 November

    Mark Jardine, Misery Hunters podcast, external

    "Keanu Baccus is another fella who plays his football in Scotland, a St Mirren player, coming on for Jackson Irvine"

    To some degree, I pity those who follow clubs with the expectation of sustained success. I'm entirely comfortable existing in our world, where Jonathan Pearce announcing to the world that a St Mirren player is entering the fray at a World Cup is cause for genuine pride and excitement.

    Baccus arrived in Paisley this Summer, uncapped and full of potential. In the space of five months, he's earned the adulation of an adoring Paisley public, the attention of Graham Arnold, and the opportunity to share a pitch on the world stage with Kylian Mbappe. 

    Despite the short time frame, there appear to be whispers already regarding outside interest in the combative midfielder. If (when) Baccus earns his move to bigger things, his loss will be significant. In terms of Australian-caused heartbreak in my family this year, it'll come painfully close to my Mum hearing that Neighbours was getting patched.

    When making his Australia debut against New Zealand in September, Baccus became the third St Mirren player on the field. Compatriot full back Ryan Strain, unlucky to miss out on his own World Cup call, and comparative international veteran Alex Greive were already facing off by then. Greive himself made his international bow within months of swapping Auckland for Renfrewshire. 

    The evidence is there for all to see - if you're an aspiring international footballer, Paisley is the place to be.

  15. Hopefully more to come from Socceroos after 'amazing' win - Baccuspublished at 15:12 27 November

    Keanu Baccus has urged Australia not to rest on their laurels after the euphoria of beating Tunisia for a first World Cup win in 12 years.

    The St Mirren midfielder helped see out the gritty 1-0 victory when he was plunged into the fray in the 85th minute for his third cap.

    Australia are now dreaming of the knockout rounds when they face Denmark in their final Group D game on Wednesday.

    “Amazing. Like nothing I’ve felt before," said Baccus.

    "I’m so happy and proud for everyone involved, here at the camp, the families back home and also the whole country behind us.

    "Hopefully there's more to come for us as a country and myself. We want to make everyone proud."

    Baccus admits he has to pinch himself at respresenting his country in Qatar, having only made his international debut in September after his summer move to St Mirren from Western Sydney Wanderers.

    “Maybe a year ago, definitely not have imagined this," he added.

    "In the last six months I’ve worked really hard to position myself to do well overseas and get myself here. It’s worked out well and timing was good."

  16. Scottish Premiership players help Australia to World Cup winpublished at 12:09 26 November

    A trio of Scottish Premiership players started as Australia kept their chances of World Cup progression alive with a 1-0 win over Tunisia.

    Hearts' Kye Rowles and Dundee United's Aziz Behich lined up in defence, with Celtic's Aaron Mooy impressing in central midfield.

    Aberdeen-born Harry Souttar, brother of Rangers and Scotland defender John, also played a starring role, making a series of important blocks in front of his own goal.

    St Mirren's Keanu Baccus was given a late run out as a substitute.

    BBC pundit Danny Murphy said: "I'm just glad I don't have to give a player of the match because between Aaron Mooy and Harry Souttar - how could you choose? They've given absolutely everything."

    Australia's final group game is against Denmark on Wednesday.

    St Mirren midfielder Keanu Baccus has been talking about the experience of playing at the World Cup for Australia.

    The 24-year-old came off the bench as the Socceroos lost their opening group game 4-1 to France.

    "It was such an amazing feeling to get on to the pitch against France," he told the Daily Record., external "It’s something I’ve dreamed of since I was a young boy."

    Baccus remains confident that Australia, who next face Tunisia on Saturday, can make the knockout stages.

    “We need to believe in ourselves to the fullest and go out there and make our families, our nation and ourselves proud by giving it our all," he said.

    “If we do that, I’m confident we can make it through the group.”
