Ex-Celtic midfielder Ross Wallace has signed a short term deal with Premiership strugglers St Mirren.
Wallace had been training with Jim Goodwin’s team following his departure from Fleetwood Town at the start of the season but was only called upon due to a shortage in midfield.
The Paisley side are currently without Ryan Flynn, Kyle Magennis, Lee Hodson and Stephen McGinn, all of which may have a stake to play in the midfield berths as the Buddies attempt to claw themselves away from the relegation fight.
Wallace started his career at Celtic as a left winger, making 52 appearances and scoring 4 goals before opting to join Roy Keane’s Sunderland with Stan Varga for £1.1m.
Speaking to the St Mirren website, Goodwin praised Wallace’s experience that could be a massive boost for his side.
“Ross is a fantastic, experienced player who has played at a high level.
“Just having someone with his experience around is great and also the fact he can play in midfield and at left-back.
“People will be used to him playing in more advanced areas but he actually played a lot at League One in England with Fleetwood Town last year in the middle of the pitch. He’s a very calming influence in there, keeps things nice and simple and reads the game well. He’s still got bags of quality as well.
