Raith Rovers completed the loan signing of Hibernian’s Jamie Gullan on transfer deadline day. The 21-year-old has made 20 appearances for the Easter Road side this season, but most of them have come off the bench.

Indeed, he has only started three games for Hibernian this season, as he has found it difficult to dislodge Hibernian’s first-choice strikers from the side. As a result, the player has returned to Raith Rovers.

Enjoyed two previous spells at club

Gullan has enjoyed two previous loan spells at Raith, and with first-team starts at Hibernian hard to come by the player and the club has obviously decided that a move will do the player good.

Raith manager John McGlynn is delighted that Gullan has returned to Starks Park for the rest of the season.

“I’m delighted to welcome Jamie Gullan back to the club. Jamie was a very popular member of the team in the first half of last season and was our top league goal scorer” he said.

“Hope will benefit us”

“There is no doubt Jamie has gained even more experience by playing in Hibs first team, which we hope will benefit us going forward.

“I would like to thank Graeme Mathie and everyone at Hibs for allowing Jamie to return till the end of the season” he concluded.

Gullan joins a Raith side who won’t have given up hope on winning the Championship title. Even though they are currently 12 points behind leaders Hearts, they do have two games in hand. The first of those games is against third placed Dunfermline on Wednesday night. It would not be a surprise to see Gullan make his debut in that game.
