PARTICK THISTLE have confirmed the signing of BSC Glasgow midfielder Andy Geggan on loan for the remainder of the campaign, the club have announced.

The 33-year-old is the second addition to Ian McCall's squad in as many days after young Rangers defender Adam Devine pitched up in Maryhill on Saturday.

Geggan - who has previously played for Dumbarton and Dunfermline, and who worked under McCall at Ayr United - left Somerset Park last summer to drop down the divisions and sign for BSC Glasgow in the fifth tier.

McCall told the club's website that he expected Geggan's versatility to prove useful during the business end of the campaign.

“Andy is a player I know very well having worked closely with him in the past," the Jags boss said. "He is a player who brings a tremendous amount of experience to the club and he knows what it takes to win in this division.

“He is able to play in a number of positions across the pitch and this versatility will be a great asset to have with a busy run of fixtures coming up until the end of the season.”

Thistle have been forced into action in the extended transfer window for lower league clubs after on-loan midfielder Blair Spittal - originally recruited after another loanee, Dundee United's Declan Glass, suffered a serious injury weeks after signing and returned to Tannadice - went back to his parent club Ross County in January.

In addition, Dundee reneged on a loan deal struck in February to send Declan McDaid to Firhill once the Maryhill outfit got the green light to resume training after the winger returned to form at Dens Park.

Further additions are expected in the coming weeks, Herald and Times Sport understands, with 34-year-old playmaker Chris Erskine on the brink of sealing a return to Firhill for a fourth spell in Glasgow west end.

Erskine is a fan favourite at the League One club, having played a significant role in Thistle's promotion to the Premiership in 2013. His most recent spell with the Jags was brought to an end when then manager Gary Caldwell could not guarantee the midfielder playing time, prompting Erskine to join Livingston in January 2019.

He stayed with the Premiership until last summer when his contract expired, when he dropped four divisions to sign for East Kilbride.

The Jags returned to training last week after being forbidden due to Covid-19 restrictions, with the League One campaign expected to resume later this month.
