Raith Rovers are delighted to have secured the signature of Hibs forward Jamie Gullan on a 2 and a half year deal – “The Hammer” is now contracted to the Rovers until the end of the 2023 – 24 season.
The club would like to place on record our Thanks to Hibernian FC Manager Shaun Maloney and Chief Executive Ben Kensall for their help and co-operation in making this transfer possible.
In a total of 50 appearances (36 of them starts) in his three previous loan stints at Stark’s Park Jamie found the net a total of 14 times, including a brace in the derby victory over Dunfermline Athletic last March.
The player talked to RaithTV about finalising his return to the club shortly after signing:
Gullan first signed for the Rovers on loan on 28th February 2019 (a deadline day signing) for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.
He returned to Stark’s Park on August 22nd 2019 on loan until January 11th 2020 before returning to Hibs and featuring regularly in first team squads.
A third stint at the Rovers started on deadline day last season, with Jamie proving to be a key addition to the Rovers squad and playing a major part in the club securing a playoff spot in our maiden Championship campaign after 3 years in the 3rd tier.
The 22 year old has been with Hibs since 2014 after starting in the Hearts youth system, and scored one of the goals in the Final as Hibs beat Aberdeen to with the 2017–18 Scottish Youth Cup final. Jamie has also spent time on loan with Gala Fairydean Rovers and Queens Park earlier in his career.
