Dunfermline have signed goalkeeper Paul Gallacher on a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old returns for a second spell at East End Park, having spent the last two seasons with St Mirren.

Capped eight times for Scotland, Gallacher was with Norwich before joining the Pars on loan in 2007, then signing for the following term.

"Paul has been a top keeper over the years and we are delighted to get him," manager Jim McIntyre told the Dunfermline websiteexternal-link.

Chris Smith was Dunfermline's number one last season, playing in every game as they won the First Division title.

Smith agreed a contract extension last month and McIntyre added: "It's important that we have two good keepers vying for the number one spot and Paul's arrival will provide good competition."

Gallacher began his career with Dundee United before moving to Norwich under freedom of contract in the summer of 2004.
