Tommy Wright is hopeful that star man Matty Kennedy will sign a new contract with St Johnstone.
The Perth boss revealed that St Mirren have been in touch with the Perth club regarding their winger, who set up Saints’ equaliser for Callum Hendry against Ross County yesterday.
Aberdeen have yet to register an interest, however.
Wright said: “I’ve got a great relationship with Derek (McInnes) and I’m sure that if he’s interested he’ll give me a buzz.
“St Mirren have been in contact. It shows they’re ambitious.
“We want to get him tied down. There’s a meeting next week and hopefully it will get over the line.
“As I’ve said before, until the ink is dry on the contract I don’t take anything for granted. I’ve been stung too many times.”
Meanwhile, Wright was frustrated that his team didn’t get the win they deserved.
After watching Saints dominate the game virtually from start to finish, he said: “There were two other occasions it’s been like that – against them.
“That’s three times we’ve played them and somehow we haven’t managed to beat them.
“We could have done better for their goal and the final ball let us down a bit but the boys showed character and totally dominated the game.
“A point was the least we deserved. It should have been all three.
“I’m pleased with the reaction and pleased to keep the unbeaten run going.
“We had a lot more efforts than we’ve been creating at home, which was a real positive.
“We’ve got the break but it would have been nice for us if there wasn’t one because we’re building momentum on this unbeaten run.
“We’ll come back refreshed.”
It was the fifth time this season that supersub Hendry has come off the bench to score.
“Kano led the line really well and the plan was to bring Callum on,” said Wright.
“He gets one chance and takes it. What he needs to do is, when he gets starts, become a 90 minute player.
Wright was unhappy that County’s goalscorer, Iain Vigurs, hadn’t been given a red card.
“The goal came from someone who probably shouldn’t have been on the pitch,” he pointed out. “Vigurs had two clear fouls that went unpunished.
County co-manager Stuart Kettlewell didn’t try to spin this as two points dropped – even though his side took the lead.
He said: “I have to be honest, we feel as if we got more than we deserved.
“St Johnstone were the better team throughout.
“There was a frantic spell after they equalised and we were hanging on a bit at the end.”
