Iron sign Rory McArdle

21 June 2017

Scunthorpe United have signed Bradford City defender Rory McArdle on a free transfer.

The 30-year-old centre-back has penned a three-year deal, which comes into effect from July 1st, to become our third new signing of the summer.

A full Northern Ireland international with seven caps to his name, McArdle began his career at Sheffield Wednesday. He spent three years there before moving permanently to Rochdale following two successful loan spells at Spotland.

Three successful years followed before a 2010 move to Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen, where he spent two seasons.

The summer of 2012 saw McArdle move to Bradford, where he performed consistently well and earned a reputation as one of the best defenders in League One. Overall, he has made over 450 career appearances and scored 26 goals.
