JUNIOR outfit Rob Roy last night pulled off a major coup by signing former Rangers star Marvin Andrews on a short-term deal.
Andrews has been out of football since leaving Wrexham recently and will become the second big-name signing in the non-league ranks this week after another ex-Ibrox star Russell Latapy penned a deal with East Senior side Edinburgh City.
Andrews’ arrival at Adamslie Park will cause a stir and the 35-year-old, who has also played for Raith, Livingston, Queen of the South and Hamilton, is likely to make his debut against Clydebank at Holm Park tomorrow.
He earned 101 caps for Trinidad and Tobago, made 10 appearances for Wrexham last season and played four times for Queens.
Rob Roy manager Jimmy Lindsay knows he will be getting a great player.
He said: “We hope to get international clearance for Marvin to play for us straight away but we will only have him for a month or so as some other club is sure to snap him up.
“We are delighted and it will be a tremendous coup for the club because everybody knows what a great player he is.
“This will be a great signing for the club even if it is for a short period of time.
“I won’t have any problems pitting him in against Clydebank or Auchinleck Talbot in our next two games because he is so good.”
