Tommy McIntyre has no worries over new signing Ciaran Dickson.

The midfielder signed a three year contract in January but for some reason that deal was mutually consented during the summer.

Yesterday Dickson made a scoring debut for in the SPFL Trust Trophy but it wasn’t enough to prevent a hastily assembled team from losing 3-1 against Morton.

The 19-year-old midfielder has played for Scotland at u-16 through to u-19 level and will now be playing in the Lowland League as he looks to push his way towards a first team place.

Discussing Dickson, McIntyre told The Sun:

He’ got the personality to handle the move. I don’t want to go too much on Ciaran but there have been players in the past on either side who have done that.

Ciaran made an impact but we need to be careful with him. He’ just come in and I thought he did well. He will get better and better.

He’ a top player and will be a big acquisition for us. But he’s just come in and we need to give him a bit of time to settle.

Dickson played for 35 minutes of a tie last season against for Steven Gerrard’ side then made six appearances on loan at Queen of the South.

The reasons for his departure from Ibrox seem a little mysterious but with a contract secured at he’ll be looking forward rather than back.
