Shields to leave Pars for America

Greg Shields in action for Dunfermline
Shields has enjoyed two spells at East End Park

Dunfermline Athletic have confirmed that defender Greg Shields has left East End Park and is poised to join Carolina Railhawks in the USA.

The First Division club's website stated: "He has an offer from USL1 club Carolina Railhawks, which he is seriously considering."

Carolina currently sit top of the 11-team league and are coached by a Scot, Martin Rennie.

Shields said: "It is really too good an opportunity not to accept."

The 32-year-old had two spells with Dunfermline, first joining from Rangers in 1997.

Two years later he was sold to Charlton Athletic for nearly £600,000 and went on to play for Kilmarnock before returning to East End Park in 2004.
