Paul Dalglish will play for Linfield against Airdrie
Linfield have signed Paul Dalglish, the son of Liverpool and Scotland legend Kenny.
Dalglish, who has been training with the Belfast Blues, agreed terms on Tuesday and passed his medical.
Linfield supporters should get their first chance to see him in action when the Irish League club play Airdrie in a friendly match on Thursday night at Windsor Park.
Manager David Jeffrey was pleased with the signing having been keen to strengthen his squad after a barren 2002-03 campaign.
"Paul is a quality player and has great technical ability," said Jeffrey.
"He has played in the English Premiership and indeed turned down offers in England to come to us.
"He will have a big part to play in the life of the Club."
Meanwhile the deal to bring the former QPR and Everton striker Brett Angell to Linfield has fallen through.
According to Jeffrey, terms had been agreed but Angell turned down Linfield's request that he play in a couple of trial games.
Philip Mitchell has stepped down as coach of the youth team at Windsor, Linfield Rangers.
