Raith Rovers have today further strengthened in the defensive department, signing experienced central defender Keith Watson on a 1 year deal after his contract at Ross County expired earlier this month.

Keith (33) has extensive experience in the SPFL Premiership and Championship, having played for Dundee United, Hibernian, St Mirren, St Johnstone and Ross County since breaking through at Tannadice as a 17 year old attacking fullback in January 2007.

Rovers manager Ian Murray said of his latest signing:

“We were looking for that bit of experience and I know Keith from his time playing at St Mirren with me.

He’s had a good career in the SPFL Premiership with Dundee Utd, Hibs and Ross County.

We identified Keith a number of months ago as a potential signing, and he’ll bring solid centre half experience to Stark’s Park”

Keith lists Aidan Connolly (at Dundee Utd) and in more recent years Josh Mullin (at Ross County, where they won the SPFL Championship and Challenge Cup) among his former teammates, and talked exclusively to RaithTV after signing up at Stark’s Park:
