Former Bearsden Academy pupil Sam, a law student, completed a loan move from Dundee United for the rest of the 2019/20 season.

It will be the defender's second spell with the club, having been on loan during season 2017/18 when his parent club was Celtic.

He played 27 games during that spell and scored one goal, the winner in a 2-1 victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle in September.

Injury ruled him out of playing in the final of what is now the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup against the same club that season.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "Sam was a major success during his first season with the club and the aim is absolutely for him to replicate that now he is back here.

"We wanted to bring him back last season, also on loan, but he picked up an injury which put paid to the chances of that.

"He is raring to go for Dumbarton for a second time and we're certain we'll see some quality from him over the remaining games of the season."

He represented Scotland at Under 16, 17 and 19 levels. He captained the Celtic Under 20 side to victory in the 2017 Scottish Youth Cup final.
