Irish pair Cillian Sheridan and Ian Lawlor join Scottish Premiership outfit

Dundee were promoted to the top flight via the play-offs last season.

DUNDEE FOOTBALL CLUB have announced deals for Cillian Sheridan and Ian Lawlor today. 

After a two-year absence, the Dees returned to the Scottish Premiership in May via the promotion/relegation play-off — at the same time sending Kilmarnock to the second tier for the first time in 28 years.

Cavan-born Sheridan has agreed a two-year deal that will see him back in Scottish football. 

The well-travelled striker, 32, came through the ranks at Celtic and had a spell at Kilmarnock, while he has played in Bulgaria, Cyprus, Poland, New Zealand and Israel — most recently on the books at Wisla Plock. 

Sheridan is capped three times for the Republic of Ireland at senior level. 

Lawlor has also signed a two-year contract at Dens Park after spending time on trial at the club recently.

Having come through Manchester City’s academy, the Dubliner joined Doncaster Rovers in 2017.

The 26-year-old made 85 appearances there, while also going on loan to Scunthorpe United and Oldham Athletic. 

He is a former Ireland U21 international who has featured in the senior squad. 

Ex-Ireland U21 defender Ryan Sweeney joined Dundee from Mansfield Town last month, while the club is captained by ex-Liverpool, Stoke City and Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam. 

They are at home to St Mirren on the first weekend of the season, which kicks off on Saturday, 31 July.
