Raith Rovers are delighted to announce that Hearts striker Steven MacLean has signed for the club today on loan until the end of the 2019-20 season.
Steven (37) came through the ranks at Rangers and has played for 11 senior clubs in his career, including Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff City, Aberdeen and a five and a half year stint at St Johnstone.
He has averaged a goalscoring rate of 1 goal in every 3.6 games throughout his club career, and was also honoured with 4 under 21 Scotland international caps in 2002.
Speaking of his latest acquisition, Rover manager John McGlynn said: “I’m absolutely delighted to sign Steven, who brings vast experience and knowledge to our club and our challenge to get to the Ladbrokes SPFL Championship.
He is a SPFL Premiership player and we have fought off many other clubs from leagues above to get him. He is enthusiastic about the challenge and is very much up for it – his experience will help our young players both on and off the park in the run – in to the end of the season.
Everyone I have spoken to about Steven has mentioned he is a top professional; his intelligence as a striker will get him in good positions to create goal scoring opportunities both for himself and others and I’m sure he will fit in to our style of play.”
Welcome to the Rovers Stevie!
