Former Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam continued his impressive return to Scottish football on Friday night with an important brace for Dundee in a 3-3 draw at Alloa Athletic.

Adam began his professional career at Ibrox and turned out 77 times for the Gers in all competitions between 2003 and 2009, before leaving for England.

He forged a successful club career south of the border, representing Blackpool, Liverpool, Stoke City and Reading, but after being released by the Royals over the summer, he opted to return to Scotland.

The 34-year-old signed a two-year deal with boyhood club Dundee in September and has made a fantastic start to his stint at Dens Park.

James McPake’s side have made a slow start to the season, but Adam netted in two of their opening three Championship fixtures and he took his tally to four with a point-salvaging brace against Alloa.

However, the former Ger pulled one back with a free-kick which bounced in off the upright via Cammy Kerr, before smashing home a penalty six minutes from time following a handball from Jon Robertson.

It was another impressive contribution from the veteran, with the resulting point moving Dundee up to fifth in the 10-team second tier.

After playing the full 90 minutes in the first three games of the Championship season, fellow former Ibrox midfielder, Graham Dorrans, was not involved.
