Legendary status gets bandied about these days but Marc McAusland is willing to wait to earn that accolade
Marc McAusland is not looking at himself in any type of heroic light similar to the the list of St Mirren legends he looks up to, despite being part of the team that picked up the club's first trophy in 26 years. The Scottish Communities League Cup win was the first piece of major silverware to be won by the Paisley side since the likes of Frank McGarvie, Billy Abercromby and Tony Fitzpatrick claimed the Scottish Cup back in 1987. However, defender McAusland does not feel comfortable adding his name to the list of Saints greats just yet.He said: "I've still got a wee bit to go before I can say I'm on the same level as guys like Tony 'Fitz' or Aber. I know the likes of Tony really well so when I see him next I'll give him a cuddle. I'm sure he will have enjoyed the last few days. Guys like him are legends but and it's great to think we are in the same company as those players who have won trophies with St Mirren."The 3-2 win at Hampden sparked a huge two-day party in Paisley and McAusland was right at the centre of the action. He said with a laugh: "I had to call it a day on Monday night quite early because I was too drunk. My voice is going and my body is sore - I feel like I've been hit by a bus. It was some party. The whole of Paisley was bouncing. It's been the best couple of days of my footballing career. I'll never forget it. The fans made it. They were tremendous."
