Dundee United have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Cammy Bell from Rangers on a two-year deal.
The capture of the 29-year-old Scotland international is a huge boost for the Tangerines in general and manager Ray McKinnon in particular.
The switch to Tannadice had to wait on Bell’s securing a severance package from the Light Blues to cover the final year of his Ibrox deal.
After that was agreed earlier yesterday, the player made his way to Dundee to meet McKinnon and sign on the dotted line, with confirmation coming this evening.
Bell said, “After I spoke to the new gaffer here he sold me the club and what he wants to achieve.
“The passion and determination he showed when I met him convinced me this was the right place for me.
“Dundee United are a massive club and I want to be part of what we are building.
“There are some fantastic players here and some fantastic targets the gaffer wants to bring in.
“It will be a tough league but the pressure that brings is an enjoyable one and something we have to deal with on a weekly basis.
“I want to get back playing after a difficult time with injury and I want to get back involved in the Scotland set-up.
“I am sure the fans will back us and we can go forward together and be successful.
“The hard work starts on Thursday and we have to earn the right to get back up to the Ladbrokes Premiership. I am hungry to get back playing and delighted to be doing so for Dundee United.”
