The former Celtic midfielder put pen to paper on the deal this morning as the crisis-torn Coca-Cola League One prepare for their opening clash with Tranmere on Saturday.

The 33-year-old, who has also been made skipper by boss Dennis Wise, has joined the club on a free transfer after parting company with the Scottish champions at the end of last season.
