Dunfermline manager Peter Grant is delighted to have signed Rhys Breen from Rangers as the defender leaves Ibrox for East End Park.

The centre-back has been at Rangers since he was a child and has spent time away from Ibrox on loan at Partick Thistle, Queen of the South and Orange County most recently. Breen joins Dunfermline on a permanent two-year deal ahead of the club’s Scottish Championship opener against Greenock Morton.

Grant said of the signing from Ibrox: “I am delighted with young Rhys Breen coming in because I thought he did very well against us for Queen of the South last year when we played against them. I didn’t realise that he had gone to Orange County when I asked Rangers if there was an opportunity.

“I was glad that we could actually purchase that one and he becomes a Dunfermline player, he is not a Rangers player.

 

“I am absolutely delighted because he is a young man with an unbelievable attitude to his game and I think he’s only going to get better. Left-sided centre backs are very difficult to get. I know how tough that can be.”
