Dead­line day deal for striker

Rutherglen Reformer - - Juniors - Mur­ray Spooner

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn made a suc­cess­ful dead­line day swoop for Cam­bus­lang Rangers striker Alessan­dro Savarese as the trans­fer win­dow slammed shut on Fri­day.

The 21-year-old has swapped the blue of the Lang for the black and white hoops at Glens af­ter he broke his an­kle at the start of this sea­son and failed to nail down a spot in Paul McColl’s start­ing 11.

Hav­ing scored the win­ning goals for Tower Hearts un­der-21s against Glen­cairn un­der-21s at sea­son in both the League Cup fi­nal and the cham­pi­onship de­cider, the striker will be a familiar face to Glens fans.

New boss Wil­lie Har­vey be­lieves the player has made the cor­rect choice by choos­ing to join Lang’s lo­cal ri­vals.

He said: “Alessan­dro is one who we’ve been in­ter­ested in for a while. He played against our un­der-21s and we were look­ing at him at him be­fore the start of the sea­son. But a coach at Tower Hearts moved to Cam­bus­lang and took sev­eral play­ers with him.

“He was made avail­able late last week and we moved quickly for him. He’s a good striker who can score goals.”

The Glens also signed ex-Brechin City mid­fielder Craig John­ston.

Michael Collinder ex­ited Somervell Park for Wishaw Ju­niors while Cam­bus­lang made a dead­line day sign­ing of their own.

Jor­dan Mor­ton has put pen to pa­per with the Wee Gers for the re­main­der of the sea­son.

The for­mer Cum­nock Ju­niors player is a young right-sided mid­fielder or winger.
