Thistle today were able to make a further addition to the playing squad with the signing of former Celtic youngster Stephen O’Donnell, Stephen being released by Celtic at the end of last season despite featuring in the team that lifted the SFA Youth Cup defeating Rangers in the Hampden final.
Stephen can play in a number of positions across the back and in midfield but is primarily a right back. His addition to the squad, on a deal until the end of the current season, is seen as increasing competition for that position in the first team.
Said manager Jackie McNamara;
“Stephen has been training with us for a few weeks and we liked what we saw. Although mainly a right back he can play in a number of positions and is very comfortable on the ball. He should prove to be another good addition to the squad.”
