Ballymena United have signed Scottish defender Gareth Rodger from St Johnstone.

The 21-year-old joins on loan until at least January.

Manager Glenn Ferguson secured the deal with the Scottish Premiership club, managed by former Ballymena manager Tommy Wright.

“Obviously the deal is subject to clearance, but we don’t expect any problems with this.

“I’d like to extend my thanks to Tommy Wright for his help on this matter and look forward to seeing Gareth in action,” added Ferguson.
