Queen’s Park head coach Ray McKinnon reckons that he will have added a Premiership-quality player to his squad as soon as his latest new recruit Simon Murray is up to full fitness.
McKinnon said: “Simon can bring us pace and goals. I know him from my time at Dundee United and he scored a bundle of goals for them.
“That form saw him get a move to the top-flight with Hibs where he scored a bundle of goals as well.
“He eventually moved over to Bidvest Wits in South Africa and they paid a decent transfer fee for him.”
Murray – who played for Montrose and Arbroath as well as junior sides Downfield, Tayport and Dundee Violet earlier in his career – started off with a bang in South Africa.
But his time there ended in disappointment, with McKinnon adding: “Unfortunately, he suffered a knee injury last year that he is not yet fully over.
“He has a bit of rehabilitation to go but he is working really hard to get fully fit.”
“Once he is fully fit, it will be like having a Premiership striker in our ranks. I am delighted that he has joined us as he is exactly the type of player that we wanted to play alongside Bob McHugh.
“I am expecting them to form a good partnership.”
