Former Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot has made a surprise switch to Lowland League publicity stunt Open Goal Broomhill FC after leaving Inverness CT.
Broadfoot, who was reportedly wanted by clubs in the Championship and League One, joins the Broadwood-based side after partnering with the Si Ferry-fronted podcast.
The former Gers defender will come up against his old side’s B team this season in the Lowland League and it will be interesting to see how the Rangers kids fare against a player with Broadfoot’s experience.
Broadfoot had two spells at Kilmarnock prior to joining Inverness either side of a short second spell at the club he began his career, St Mirren.
The defender also spent five years playing in England for the likes of Blackpool and Rotherham after leaving Rangers in 2012 following the club’s financial meltdown.
He would win four trophies at Rangers in five years and was part of the side that reached the UEFA Cup final in 2008 in Manchester.
Broadfoot a good signing for Open Goal FC as money starts flying
The former Scotland international is a bit of a coup signing for Podcast FC as the money starts flying around from the newly-renamed side.
With some big names arriving at Broadwood, they’ll quickly become the scalp everyone – including Rangers B – wants to take this season.
It’ll be a bit of a culture shock for Broadfoot going from the relative luxury of the Championship to slumming it in the Lowland League against university teams and Colts.
