Former Rangers transfer target Matthew Knox is set to join League Two minnows Brechin City, according to a report, after his Livingston contract ended this summer.
According to the Evening Times, Knox will join Billy Smith’s squad imminently and could even be involved in tomorrow’s Betfred Cup clash against Forfar.
Knox was trailed by the likes of Rangers, Liverpool and Manchester United after bursting onto the scene at the Tony Macaroni Arena, with former Gers boss Mark Warburton a big admirer of the teenager.
After spending time on trial with Rangers and several training stints with Jose Mourinho’s Man United, Knox’s big move never arrived and the forward struggled to live up to the hype that surrounded him.
The forward couldn’t keep his place in the side and eventually spent time on loan with East Fife and Berwick Rangers before leaving the Lions last month.
A move to Brechin is quite the coup for the part-timers and will give Knox a fantastic chance to get his career back on track.
If he does well at Glebe Park then a return to full-time football won’t be far away – although Knox must be wondering how he went from being courted by Rangers and Man United to signing for Brechin City.
