Gallacher and Miller quit Jags


Partick Thistle boss Alan Archibald has lost two more players, after former Dundee United goalkeeper Paul Gallacher and ex-St Johnstone defender Gary Miller became the latest Jags to quit Firhill.

Veteran goalkeeper and coach Gallacher – who spent three and a half years as Tannadice No 1 from 2000-2003 – and right-back Miller, who left Saints last summer, both rejected the offer of fresh contracts.

It comes just a day after Belgian defender Freddy Frans also announced he would be moving on from the Maryhill side, while midfielder Stuart Bannigan has turned down an offer to remain with Thistle.

Miller, 29, signed for Partick last season and made 24 appearance­s, while Gallacher, 36, registered 40 appearance­s during his two-year stay with the Glasgow outfit.

He has also played for Norwich, Dunfermlin­e and Ross County.

There was good news for Archibald, though, with David Wilson following the lead of midfield colleagues Abdul Osman and Stevie Lawless by committing himself to the club for another 12 months.

The 21-year-old made his debut for Thistle back in January 2014 as a late substitute against Celtic and has since gone on to feature 19 times for Archibald’s side.
