ISL – Jamshedpur FC completes the signing of Scottish forward Greg Stewart

-

ISL side Jamshedpur FC has roped in Scottish striker Greg Stewart, IFTWC can confirm.

The 31-year old spent most of his career in the Scottish Premiership, the first division of Scotland football. Stewart started his professional career in Cowdenbeath FC in 2010.

Jamshedpur FC has secured the signature of Greg Stewart. He (Stewart) bid adieu to Rangers FC in the last week of June. As Jamshedpur offer came in, without any delay, he chose the ISL side,” said a source who has been tracking the development closely.

As Rangers didn’t offer contract extension, they (Jamshedpur) were the one whose offer came first,” the source added.

Playing for Cowdenbeath FC from 2010 to 2014, Stewart played 140 matches and scored 40 goals. Moreover, he also assisted 19 times. Later, moving to Dundee FC in 2014, his goal-scoring streak continued.

Stewart’s impressive performance caught the eyes of the English club Birmingham City FC, and the club went calling him and signed in 2016. Unfortunately, the 2016-17 season was not a fruitful one for the Scottish, as he came in as a substitute most of the time and scored only six goals in 25 matches. As a return, he was loaned to Aberdeen FC and Kilmarnock FC for two consecutive seasons, respectively.

In 2019, Steven Gerard led side Rangers FC signed Stewart on a two-year deal. Making 33 appearances, he scored three goals and assisted seven times.

Jamshedpur FC had already completed five foreigners signing for the upcoming season under the leadership of head coach Owen Coyle.

Having the experience playing in the Europa League, Stewart can play multiple positions, which will be a valuable asset for the club. As the club has already acquired Jordan Murray and has an existing contract with Nerijus Valskis, it will be interesting to watch out how Coyle fields these attacking players throughout an exciting season ahead!
