Former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Rhys McCabe is a ‘good signing’ for Scottish League One club Airdrieonians, according to manager Ian Murray.

The midfielder spent last season at Scottish Championship club Queen of the South but moves to the Diamonds ahead of the 2021/22 campaign. Now 28,  McCabe started his career at Rangers before joining Sheffield Wednesday for a three year spell, where he made 30 first-team appearances.

He has since featured for Dunfermline Athletic plus Irish duo Sligo Rovers and St Patrick’s Athletic. Murray said: “We’re delighted to get Rhys – he’s the kind of central midfielder that we’ve been crying out for for a long time, and he’ll complement Scott Agnew very well.

“The spine of our team is coming together, and the experience Rhys had gained playing down south and in the Championship will be valuable for us. He’s a lovely footballer and a good passer of the ball who can get up and down the pitch. It’s a good signing for us and hopefully another statement of intent as we prepare for the upcoming season.”
