Scottish striker coming to the RailHawks?

Posted by on Fri, Jun 25, 2010 at 2:49 PM

First Martin Rennie, then Greg Shields and Paul Ritchie. Could a fourth Scottish brogue be joining the RailHawks this summer?

All signs are pointing to a mid-July debut of Allan Russell, the 2008 player of the year in the Scottish second division. Today, BBC published an item in which Russell said, "I officially sign on 14 July and I'll hit the ground running because it's mid-season over there."

The RailHawks declined to confirm the report, but this is only the latest in a series of published reports saying that he will indeed become a RailHawk. (It's on his Wikipedia page, too.)

Russell is currently out of contract. His most productive season was his single season with second-division Airdrie United, when he scored 19 goals in 32 appearances in 2007-08.

He most recently played for Scottish Premier League side Kilmarnock, making 25 appearances in two seasons and netting four goals. His time there was apparently marred by injury, and his contract expired at the end of the 2009-2010 season.
