Former Dundee United midfielder John Rankin has signed for Queen of the South.

The 33-year old mutually agreed to terminate his contract after just six months with Falkirk.

Rankin hasn’t been able to hold down a starting position under Peter Houston.

He said: “John came to me earlier in the week for a chat and we agreed that it was best for all parties if we came to an agreement.

“I understand his desire and need to play regular football. It is just unfortunate the way things have panned out that due to the competitive nature of our squad he was unable to get that here.

“John has been a model professional all throughout his career and made a positive impact on the dressing room during his short time with the club.

“I’d like to wish him all the very best as he looks to move on to a new chapter in his career.”

New boss Gary Naysmith said: “I am delighted to have been able to bring John on board.

“He wasn’t a player that I thought I would get, but when I was speaking to Peter Houston about the availability of other players he mentioned that John might be available and allowed us to speak to him which is great.”
