Queen’s Park goalkeeper Wullie Muir can’t wait for the football to return – so he can keep battling it out for the number one shirt with Cammy Bell.

The former Rangers, Dundee United and Kilmarnock goalkeeper was brought into Hampden as part of Ray McKinnon’s revolution in January.

However, before the SPFL shut down Muir had held on to the goalkeepers jersey ahead of the Scotland cap.

Muir wants to continue to learn from the veteran shot stopper whenever the Spiders are allowed backing in training.

The 27-year-old said: “It’s been good for me to have him about, because let’s be honest he’s not a bad goalkeeper either!

“It’s a good thing for the club that they can attract players like him.

“With him coming in it’s going to give me a bit of an extra challenge, so it’s only going to help myself and the team as well.

“He’s been good to work with and will help you out with things when he can.”

He added: “He’s bang on, he’s a genuine and really nice guy even though he’s come from playing at a really high level.

“He’s good to have roundabout the team as well and has that experience if we ever need to lean on it.”

The Queen’s favourite has been delighted with the resurgence of the club under gaffer McKinnon and the step away from amateur football.

He hopes they have the chance to finish the campaign as they sit just outside of the League Two play-off spots.

“It’s been the little things that we have improved,” he added.

“That’s all added up to mean we are not as hard to beat and don’t concede as many silly goals.

“That comes down to bringing in good players who have come from a high level.
