The 25-year-old becomes Robbie Neilson's seventh signing of the summer as the Jambos strive to return to the Scottish Premiership at the first attempt.

Former Scotland U21 international Gallacher has experience at all levels of Scottish football after coming through the youth ranks at Rangers and being loaned to Cowdenbeath, Forfar Athletic and Airdrieonians during his eight years at Ibrox.

He made just six senior appearances for the Gers but has played over 50 first-team games for his four clubs.

Neilson said: "We're glad to get Scott in. I fully expect him to push Neil Alexander all the way for the No.1 shirt as he's certainly got the ability to do so

"We've said all along that we were going to try and bring another goalkeeper in but it was a case of waiting to make sure that we got what we were looking for.

"We heard that he'd left Rangers so we made the move and spoke to his agent. We wanted to get it sorted because it gives us a bit more competition in the goalkeeping stakes.

"Scott has got experience; he's played at Forfar and Airdrie and obviously Rangers. We've now got three good goalkeepers."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
