St Mirren have cleared out yet another Alan Stubbs signing after Hayden Coulson was sent back to parent club Middlesbrough.
It comes just a day after new boss Oran Kearney told Nicolai Brock-Madsen to pack his bags and return to Birmingham after the striker failed to find the net in his five appearances for the Buddies.
England Under-19 international Coulson managed 11 outings for the Paisley outfit but while he made a bright start, his performance levels also dipped as the newly-promoted Saints struggled to adapt to life in the top flight.
He was one of 11 new signings made by Stubbs during his brief nine-game spell in charge, joining on a year-long loan from Boro.
But that agreement has now been ripped up seven months early.
In a statement, the Buddies said: “St Mirren Football Club can confirm that Hayden Coulson has returned to Middlesbrough.
“The English full-back joined Saints on loan from the English Championship side in July and went on to make 11 appearances for The Buddies, scoring once.
“The club would like to thank Hayden for his contributions and wish him well for his future career.”
