Welcome to Pollok…Iain Russell

Pollok Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of striker, Iain Russell.

Russell, who spent the last 18 months with Dumbarton, has scored 199 senior goals in his career during spells with Rangers, Motherwell, Brechin, Morton, Alloa, Stirling, Livingston, Queen of the South, Airdrie and Dumbarton.

A delighted Murdie MacKinnon had this to say on Pollok’s third new face of pre season;

“Iain is a vastly experienced striker and he brings goals to the squad as well as an ability to open up defences. He’s got a terrific scoring record, is well respected and he’s another coup for the club”

Iain, the grandson of Scotland and Rangers Hall of Famer and Airdrie honorary president Iain McMillan, will be with the squad when they return to pre season training next week.

Welcome to Pollok, Iain!
