The centre-back was ruled out for three months after suffering a dislocated thumb in the 1-1 draw with Partick on September 28.

But he may feature for the U20s next week and could be back for the busy Scottish Premiership schedule at the turn of the year when Saints face Hibernian, Celtic, Dundee United, Motherwell and Ross County within 15 days.

Saints manager Tommy Wright, whose team host Aberdeen on Saturday, said: "Steven Anderson has been getting involved in a bit more this week and possibly could train full contact next week, which is maybe two or three weeks earlier than we thought.

"Ideally we would like to get him part of a 20s game next week. There are only two 20s games (before Christimas) so if we could get him two games that will help his progress.

"There is every chance now that he will be involved for the festive period and we had really ruled him out until the first week in January."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
