Partick Thistle can today announce the signings of Rhys Breen and Kieran Wright from Rangers, on season-long loan deals, subject to SFA clearance.
Goalkeeper Kieran Wright joins the Jags’ having spent the latter part of the 2019/20 season with Alloa Athletic. The Scottish youth international featured for the Wasps after joining in late January while also developing first team experience in Rangers Colts Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup campaign conceding just one goal in those four matches.
Central defender, Rhys Breen, also joins Ian McCall’s squad for the 2020/21 term, bolstering the gaffer’s defensive options.
Breen impressed in the Rangers reserves side as they won the 18/19 Reserve League, while also playing in all six of the young Gers side’s games in the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup.
Everyone at Firhill would like to offer a warm welcome to Kieran and Rhys.
Thistle boss, Ian McCall, said: “I’m delighted that we have managed to secure these two young players. Kieran will train with us tomorrow then will be away for 8 days with the Scotland under 21s. He is here to battle it out with Jamie Sneddon for the number 1 jersey.
“Rhys is naturally left sided and is very quick. Pace was a little issue when I came back to Firhill and we have began to address that with two or three of our signings.
“The last couple of seasons I have been reasonably lucky with loans from Rangers and Celtic and I wish these 2 lads all the very best in their time with us.”
We’ll have an exclusive chat with Kieran and Rhys on Jagzone tomorrow, once the duo have joined up with the Thistle squad.
