Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat has revealed that an injury to one of last season’s key players may force him to delve into the transfer market.

The Bankies boss had previously told the Post that he was only looking to bring in one new face, a loan, and did so at the end of August when Liam Harris arrived from Hamilton Academical.

But an injury to winger Cammy McClair, who made 31 appearances last season and scored seven goals, means that Moff may be on the lookout for another wide option.

The 37-year-old is waiting on the results of a scan to determine how bad the number seven’s injury could be before deciding whether or not to bring in another new face.

He said: “If everybody was fully fit then I would be happy with the squad size but we’ve picked up a couple of injures doing pre-season, one of which is potentially quite serious.

“Cammy McClair has got a knee problem and broke down with it so we’re trying to get that assessed and we’re waiting on scan results to see how bad the damage is, so if that’s long term we might need to bring another loan in so we’ll see what happens on that one.”

Meanwhile, 17-year-old Harris joins the Bankies on loan from Premiership club Hamilton - and Moffat hopes the new man can have an impact similar to the one Kyle Munro made l2 months ago.

Munro spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Holm Park and has since gone to make his debut for the Accies against Rangers before netting the winner against Livingston at the weekend.

And the Bankies boss hopes that Harris can take the talent and attitude he’s shown in training sessions so far into a competitive environment.

He continued: “Kyle done really well last season and went back to Hamilton who were really happy with his development and he’s now been promoted into the first-team which speaks volumes for him.

“It was great to see him come on against Rangers and it’s meant we kept that relationship.

“We spoke to George Cairns, who is the head of the Academy at Hamilton, and he was keen to get Liam out for some experience, similar to what he did with Kyle, so we were obviously happy to have him - and he’s looked excellent so far in training.

“He’s very accomplished and confident on the ball, which you’d expect from a guy coming from the team at the top level.”
