Triallist on the plane to Pars Austrian training camp
Keeper Callum Reidford is part of the squad that flies out on Friday morning from Edinburgh to Munich as they head for Austria. The 21-year-old, was released by Rangers at the end of last season and was on loan to Dundee in the season before last.Having gone there for experience that was limited to just four games in six months. He told the website:-
"Going to Dundee was a bad decision. Travelling up every day from Glasgow wasn't good, I got a bad injury and things went bad from there.
"I went back to Rangers in the February and I just didn't enjoy it at all. The set-up here seems totally different, they're a better bunch of boys.
"I've only been here a couple of days but the boys have been great and coming here would be a great move for me."
Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor appeared to benefit from his time at East End and he had no reservations in commending the club to his understudy..
"He told me it was a good club and a nice club to come to and it being a good set of boys makes life a little easier."
Since Sean Murdoch was allowed to go to Hamilton Jim McIntyre has been looking for a number two and he is giving Callum a chance to impress:-
"He will come to Austria with us. He's shown up well in his first couple of days and I'll make a decision on him after Austria."
