STEVEN LAWLESS has re-joined Partick Thistle.

The Jags have snapped up the 31-year-old on a two-year contract. 

He previously spent six seasons with the Championship club between 2012 and 2018.

He was Dunfermline captain last year as they suffered relegation to League One. 

But he will remain in Scotland's second tier next term, with the Firhill club building their squad ahead of a title bid.

Ian McCall said: “I’m very happy to get the deal for Stevie sorted. The wide areas were an area we felt we needed to add to ahead of the new season and bringing him to the group gives us some real creativity in that area.

"He’s a player who can set others up or be a goal threat himself and I don’t think you can have too many players like that.

“On top of that, he’s been here before and knows exactly what it means to play for Partick Thistle and represent this club every week.

"He was part of a very successful Thistle team in the second tier previously and hopefully he can be part of another one this season.”
