ANTON FERDINAND has joined St Mirren on a one-year deal.
SunSport exclusively revealed on Monday that the ex-West Ham, Sunderland and QPR defender was training with the Buddies.
Ferdinand, 33, has been without a club since leaving Southend on August 31.
But new St Mirren boss Oran Kearney has swooped to make the former England youth star his first signing.
And Ferdinand – brother of Manchester United legend Rio – STARTS against Celtic tonight.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Kearney made it clear strengthening his defence was a priority.

He said: “When you look at the record there’s been a few goals conceded.
“We’ve gone up a league and we’ve lost a few of the experienced centre-halves from last year.
“It’s probably needing someone with a bit of experience there to come in and be a calming influence.
“Anton is staying in the same hotel as me, so we met up for an hour on Sunday night and had a really good chat.
“It was good to see there is real hunger to want to do well. He trained today and he’ll train tomorrow, then we’ll see what comes from it.”
