Gilmour wins contract with Clyde
Brian Gilmour
Brian Gilmour had been 11 years with Rangers
Former Rangers midfielder Brian Gilmour has signed for Clyde until the end of the season after a successful trial.

The 19-year-old was a product of the Ibrox youth system but failed to break into the Scottish Premier League outfit's first-team.

Gilmour told Clyde's website: "All in all, I was 11 years at Rangers and I needed a change.

"I spoke with the gaffer there and we were all agreed that the best option for me was to get first-team football."

Gilmour goes straight into Clyde's squad for the First Division visit by Livingston.

"I'm really pleased about signing for Clyde and, hopefully before long, I'll get my chance in the first team," he said.

"It will then be up to me to work hard for the team and keep my place, but I'm just desperate to play."

Meanwhile, Clyde player-manager Joe Miller is still reeling from the injury in training to defender Neil McGregor.

"He'll need to go in for an operation to tidy his knee up and, after that, it will be rest and recuperation," he said.

"It is a major blow, there's no doubt about it."

McGregor was told by a specialist that he had suffered ligament damage and a tear in his cartilage.

He could be missing for the rest of the season.
