Dunfermline Athletic

McGowan joins on loan

Tuesday, 21st Feb 2023

Dunfermline Athletic are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Paul McGowan, on loan from Dundee, until the end of the season.

Paul came through the Celtic youth system and had loan spells with Morton, Hamilton and St Mirren.

He made his Celtic debut at the age of 19 before going on to gain experience in Europe in both the Champions League and the Europa League.

Following his release from Celtic he signed with St Mirren permanently in the summer of 2011 winning the Scottish League Cup with them in 2013 before Paul Hartley took him to Dundee in June 2014. He went on to captain Dundee making 302 appearances for the Dens Park club

On the signing, Manager James McPake commented,

“He`s a player Dave and myself knew really well. Over the course of our time at Dundee he played the most game time for us. Personally I played with him, coached him and managed him.

First and foremost he`s a fantastic footballer, with bags of experience, that in a young group will be very helpful. While we do have some experience within our group we felt adding to that was crucial. Just a year ago I was playing Paul in the Scottish Premiership and he had also started this season well too.

Paul had a little bit of a niggle but has been back training for three and a half weeks, hence the reason it`s maybe taken a little longer. We also spoke in the transfer window that it`s important not to just add players, they`ve got to be the right people and in terms of the professionals I`ve worked with over my career Paul comes out at the very top.

The way he trains, he`s a winner, he wants to win every day, and the way he conducts himself in the dressing room too. We`re just delighted to get it done and delighted to be working with Paul again.”

Paul will wear squad number 23.
