Dundee United have confirmed the pre-contract signing of Ayr United right-back Liam Smith. The 23-year-old will finalise his switch to the Tangerines in the summer. Smith, who began his career at Hearts and has also played on loan for St Mirren, has agreed a two-year deal with Robbie Neilson’s men.
