Dundee have confirmed the signing of former Rangers midfielder Jamie Ness as new boss James McPake plans for life in the Championship.
The midfielder came through the ranks at Ibrox and had forced his way into the first-team before walking away in 2012 and signing for Stoke City.
After three years at the Potters, including loan spells at Leyton Orient and Crewe Alexandra, Ness moved on and signed for Scunthorpe United in 2015.
A move to Plymouth followed and Ness was a regular in Derek Adams’ side but has been allowed to move on by new boss Ryan Lowe.
Ness will join his new team-mates ahead of their trip to Spain for pre-season training and will be looking to make a big impact on his return to Scottish football.
He was highly-rated during his time at Ibrox, despite suffering a number of injury problems, but hasn’t really lived up to expectation in the years since.
The move to Dens Park will give him a good opportunity to re-establish himself in Scotland and help Dundee return to the top tier at the first attempt.
