LOAN NEWS: SONS SIGN YOUNG RANGERS DEFENDER

Monday 15th July 2019

DUMBARTON have completed a loan deal until January for 18-year-old defender Matthew Shiels, who arrives from Rangers.

The left back, who comes from Clydebank, played three games on loan to Edinburgh City in the later stages of season 2017/18.

He is set to be available for tomorrow night's second Betfred Cup sectional match away to Morton, and will wear the number seven jersey.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "Matthew will give us another option defensively and we are pleased to have him on board.

"We are grateful to Rangers for making this move possible. It is one which will, all being well, suit the player and the two clubs."
