Algeria's Kerkar disappoints St Mirren
Karim Kerkar
Midfielder Kerkar has played for Algeria seven times
The coach of Scottish Premier League side St Mirren has expressed his disappointment after Algerian Karim Kerkar pulled out of a move to the club.

Gus MacPherson had offered a contact to the 30-year-old midfielder, and says that Kerkar gave his word that he would sign.

"Karim Kerkar agreed a deal with us on Friday but come the following day he had a change of heart," MacPherson told www.saintmirren.net.

"The player has been left knowing in no uncertain terms just exactly what our feelings are in regards to this U-turn.

"The frustrating part is that he had agreed on everything and was coming into the club on Saturday to sign the deal but he didn't show up."

Kerkar is a free agent, and his reasons for backing out of the move are not clear.

"He came, he looked, he played, impressed, agreed a deal, then had a change of heart which only he can explain," said MacPherson.

Kerkar, who has seven caps for the Desert Foxes, had been in the UAE with Al-Wadha.

He has played for Scottish clubs Dundee United and Clyde.
