New Signing: Rocco Quinn

St Mirren manager Alex Rae made a new addition to his squad this morning by signing midfielder Rocco Quinn on a deal until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old midfielder, who has been released by Premiership side Ross County, signed his contract this morning after passing a medical.

A youth product of Celtic, Quinn never made an appearance for the Glasgow side but had spells on loan with Kilmarnock, St Johnstone and Livingston before breaking away from Celtic Park and signing for Hamilton Academical for the second half of the 2008/09 season.

The following season the midfielder moved to Queen of the South where he made 56 appearances for the Doonhamers before heading to the Highlands and signing for Ross County just ahead of season 2011/12.

In 4-and-a-half years with the Staggies, the former Scotland Under-21 cap made 123 appearances, scoring 12 goals in the process.

Rocco, who will go straight into the squad for tomorrow’s Ladbrokes Championship match-up with Raith Rovers, has been assigned squad number 27.

Rocco said to St Mirren Radio on his move to St Mirren: “It all happened pretty quick, Wednesday or Thursday I got a phone call from my agent saying St Mirren were interested and I’m here today signing.

“Speaking to the manager here and his plans for the club, the way he wants to take the club forward, I think that was a big factor in it. There were a few things he said that made me quite interested and excited about coming here.

“He seems to have a good plan in place and there is a lot of good players at this club so I’m just happy to be here and looking forward to getting started.

“I’ll bring experience and I’ll be giving nothing less than 100% for this club and these fans, I’ll be looking to bring a lot to the table.”
