Stuart Armstrong is the star attraction of Sunday’s matchday programme as SAINTS returns for a final edition of 2018.

The creative Scot is the subject of the big feature interview, in which he discusses his impressive education and why he pursued his studies alongside an aspiring football career in his youth.

The midfielder also explains the difficulties of leaving home, and why moving to the Premier League was always his ultimate dream – above and beyond representing the Old Firm.

Elsewhere, in-form winger Nathan Redmond speaks of his instant improvement under Ralph Hasenhüttl and offers an insight on Saints’ youngest-ever Premier League goalscorer, Michael Obafemi.

Ryan Cluett is the latest youngster to tackle our 20-question Academy feature, while we go back in time with former starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to see how his early ambitions measure up to the international career he later fulfilled.
