Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Mur­ray Spooner

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn have signed ex-Mother­well striker Gary Smith.

The 26-year-old, who has ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing in the Europa League, has penned a deal at The Cel­sius Sta­dium fol­low­ing suc­cess­ful talks with gaffer Wil­lie Har­vey.

He started his ca­reer as a youth player at Queen’s Park be­fore tak­ing up full-time foot­ball at Mother­well.

Af­ter loan spells at Dum­bar­ton and Sten­house­muir, Smith picked up an in­jury which cur­tailed his se­nior ca­reer and he moved into ju­nior foot­ball.

Shet­tle­ston took a chance on the player be­fore Su­per Premier out­fit Arthurlie came call­ing.

Glens boss Har­vey was de­lighted to pry the for­ward away from The Lie.

He said: “Gary is a premier league player. He’s got a few friends at the club so we man­aged to get him in for a con­ver­sa­tion. And we con­vinced him it was good idea to join us.

“He is ex­pe­ri­enced and he’s a goalscorer. He’s been on hol­i­day and prob­a­bly not been play­ing as much as he would have liked at Arthurlie last year so we’ll get him in train­ing.”
