Stockport County, Bristol Rovers and MK Dons target joins Scottish side

Dundee have signed Stockport County, Bristol Rovers and MK Dons target Clark Robertson, as announced by their official club website.

The centre-back has penned a two-year deal with the Scottish Premiership side and has decided against moving back to England at this stage. He has most recently been playing his football in Israel for MS Ashdod.

Robertson, 30, had ‘offers’ from both Bristol Rovers and Fleetwood Town, according to the Daily Record (live transfer blog, 21.06.24, 13.16). Meanwhile, the same source claimed Stockport County and MK Dons have also eyed a move for him over recent times.

However, in this latest update, Dundee have announced that he has joined them instead. He has said: “I’m buzzing to sign for the club and to be coming back to Scotland. I’ve worked with the manager (Tony Docherty) before at Aberdeen and when I spoke to him I was really excited about what he had to say. He’s played a big part in getting me here and hopefully I can repay that faith he has shown in me.”

The former Scotland youth international then moved down the border for the first time in 2015 and had permanent spells at Blackpool and Rotherham United. He helped the latter gain promotion to the Championship in 2020.

Robertson joined Portsmouth a year later and spent two years at Fratton Park, making 52 outings before switching to Israel.

What next?

The player is now back in his native country and will be eager to show what he can do with Dundee.

Stockport County and Bristol Rovers will be locking horns with each other in League One in the next campaign. Dave Challinor’s side won the League Two title this past season and will be eager to carry their momentum.

As for MK Dons, they remain in the fourth tier after they lost in the play-offs at the semi-final stage to eventual winners Crawley Town. Mike Williamson is the manager at Stadium.mk these days.
