Lang sign ex-Ger David­son

Hitman signs up at club

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports - Kenny Smith

For­mer Rangers young­ster Bob David­son has signed for Cam­bus­lang Rangers.

The for­ward, from Ruther­glen, was a pro­lific scorer for the Rangers re­serves be­tween 2004-07, but only made two first team ap­pear­ances.

Bob went to Bos­ton United on loan in Eng­land, but didn’t score in any of his nine ap­pear­ances, be­fore leav­ing the Ibrox club to join Dundee.

At Dens Park, the for­mer Stonelaw High pupil found the net 11 times in 54 ap­pear­ances be­tween 200709, be­fore be­ing re­leased. His last se­nior club was Clyde, where he played twice as a tri­al­ist.

Since then he has been play­ing am­a­teur and ju­nior football, with La­nark United among his clubs.

Lang boss Paul McColl was de­lighted to have added the player, now 29, to his pool, bring­ing with him ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing se­nior football.

He said: “I’m re­ally pleased to have brought in Bob. He’s a player with ex­pe­ri­ence, and he lives in Cam­bus­lang now, so it’s a good com­bi­na­tion.

“He can play ei­ther as an at­tack­ing midfielder or a for­ward, but I see him as more of a for­ward.

“I’ve played with him in the past, and played against him, and I know he’s a re­ally good guy.

“It won’t take him too long to get fit again, and he will be a real ben­e­fit for us in the sea­son ahead. You want to bring in guys with ex­pe­ri­ence, and he fits that bill per­fectly.”

The club have also added another player to their squad, with the sign­ing of a goal­keeper.

Paul said: “We’ve signed John Millen, who I knew from my time at Cum­nock.

“He was with Blan­tyre Vics and came to Cum­nock. Last sea­son we loaned him out to St Roch’s and they had a tremen­dous 12 game run-in when they went un­de­feated, and he played a big part in that.

“He’s a good keeper, and to­tally off his head!”

Paul hopes to be able to add another cou­ple of sign­ings to his pool be­fore the week is out.

He added: “We’re now into that time when it’s slightly harder to get hold of player be­cause the sum­mer hol­i­days are here.

“You get peo­ple say­ing they’ll call you when you get back, and then you have to chase them.

“We’re go­ing to have a train­ing ses­sion on Satur­day and get the boys to­gether, and take it from there.”
