Ross County is Smith's next stop

Ross County have signed Grant Smith until the end of the season.

The versatile 29-year-old can play in defence or midfield and arrives following a spell with North Queensland Fury in Australia's A League.

The son of Scottish Football Association chief executive Gordon, Smith has a long list of former clubs, including Dundee United and Carlisle.

His longest stint at any club came with Swindon over a two-year period after a spell with Sheffield United.

"We've got a hectic time ahead of us with four league games to be rescheduled and the club's first ever Scottish Cup quarter-final to prepare for, meaning we face the prospect of up to eight games in four weeks," said manager Derek Adams.

"As everyone knows we're working with a limited budget and a small squad which that sort of fixture pressure will really test, so I'm delighted we've managed to bring Grant in to strengthen the squad.

"He's a very experienced player who is comfortable in a number of positions and adds something different to the squad we already have in place, which is exactly what we need."
