St Mirren have announced the signing of former Celtic and Premier League midfielder Ross Wallace on a deal until the end of the season.

Jim Goodwin recently stated he would be looking for free agents as injury plagues his squad. He has moved to get one in Wallace.

Capped once by Scotland, 34-year-old Wallace started his career with Celtic. He made over 30 appearances before moving to Sunderland in 2006.

He would remain in English football until September 2019. His Sunderland spell was followed by stints with Preston, Burnley, Sheffield Wednesday and Fleetwood Town.


Wallace became a Premier League player whilst south of the border, featuring 36 times in the English top flight with Sunderland and Burnley. He has been without a club since his release from Fleetwood Town in September.

The experienced campaigner will provide needed depth for Goodwin. Just recently, influential performers Kyle Magennis and Ryan Flynn had their respective campaigns ended by cruciate ligament injuries.

St Mirren currently sit tenth in the Premiership ahead of their match with Livingston this evening.
