Dundee deal for Barrowman

Andrew Barrowman has signed a short-term contract at Dundee

following his release by financially-crippled Dunfermline.

The 28-year-old striker was among those made redundant by the

Pars as they try desperately to cut costs.

He had feared finding himself in the football wilderness until

the summer.

Barrowman said: “I’m looking at three months without a wage. I

can’t play football, which is what I’ve done since the age of

16.”

Dundee have, however, moved to bring him on board on a deal

which will run until the end of the season.

A statement released on the club’s official website read: “The

signing is subject to SFA clearance and special dispensation due to

Dunfermline’s circumstances.”
