Hibs youngster Jamie Gullan joins Raith on loan

Last updated : 23 August 2019 By Steve Forbes

Young Hibs striker Jamie Gullan has joined Raith Rovers on loan until January.

The 20-year-old heads back to Kirkcaldy after spending time on loan with the League One club last season.

Gullan has also had previous loan spells with Gala Fairydean and Queen's Park.

Raith manager John McGlynn is delighted to have the player back in his squad, speaking to the official Raith website, he said:

"I’m delighted to welcome Jamie back to the Rovers after a successful loan deal in the final quarter of last season,

"I would like to thank everyone at Hibernian FC for allowing Jamie to further his development with us.

"He will bring flair to our attacking options, he can play anywhere across the front line positions, is direct and carries a goal threat. He links the play well and is a team player, he knows the club and the players from last season and Lewis Allan from their time at Hibernian.

"Jamie knows how we play and operate, so it was a no-brainer really."

Editor's View:

A good move for a really exciting young talent at Easter Road.

Jamie spent time on loan with Raith last season, and he will team up with former academy team-mate Lewis Allan who has signed for Rovers after being freed by Hibs in the summer.

Hopefully he will score some goals and come back to the Hibees a better player come January.

Good luck Jamie.
