Steven Milne


Striker who became Owen Coyle's fifth summer signing in 2005.

Came through the youth ranks at Dundee and made over 100 appearances for the Dens Park side and also enjoyed a successful season on loan to Forfar Athletic in the early part of his Dens career.

Spent 2004/2005 with Plymouth Argyle although injury restricted the impact he was able to make at Home Park.

Steven signed a three year deal at Saints and after an impressive pre-season, scored on his debut in the Bell's Cup tie with Alloa in August 2005 and grabbed his first hat-trick in a royal blue jersey in the 5-1 Bell's Cup win over Raith Rovers.

However, his season was curtailed when he picked up an injury against Dundee on 2nd January and it was mid-March before he was able to get back into action with sub appearances against Ross County and Dundee.

Fit again for the start of the 2006/2007 season, 'Savo' opened his acount for the season with a double against Raith Rovers in a 3-1 Challenge Cup win and found the net regularly in the early weeks of the season before crowning the early part of his season with both goals in the stunning 2-0 win over Rangers at Ibrox in the quarter final of the CIS Insurance Cup.

However, that proved to be the highlight of the campaign for 'Savo' who then succumbed to further knee problems which greatly curtailed the remainder of his season and unfortunately just when he seemed to have over come these problems he sustained a different knee injury following a training ground accident and although surgery in May 2007 repaired the damage, Steven faced the opening months of the 07/08 campaign on the sidelines but towards the end of November he came back into contention and on 8th December he made his first start in eleven months against Morton and scored in the 2-2 draw. Later that week Saints moved to secure the services of striker Steven Milne on a two year extension to his current contract which was due to expire next summer. The new deal takes him through to 2010.
