Aberdeen have won the race to sign Queen’s Park teenage striker Michael Ruth.
Hibs were also keen on landing the 17-year-old but the Dons have persuaded Ruth to commit his future to Pittodrie.
Rangers had also been keen on landing the teen and Ruth featured for the Ibrox club in a youth tournament in Germany while on trial last summer.
Ruth made his Queen’s Park first team debut in March and scored his first senior goal in a 4-0 victory away to Albion Rovers the following month.
Ruth will go into the Aberdeen Development squad.
Meanwhile, defender Sam Roscoe has left Aberdeen for Ayr United in a two year deal.
The centre-half spent three seasons at Pittodrie after signing from Blackpool. He was on loan at Alloa last season.
Roscoe said: “The likes of Michael Rose, Scott McKenna and Danny Harvie have all come to Ayr and done well.
“And everyone knows what Lawrence Shankland achieved.
“So that was a big part of my decision to go to Ayr.
“I like to play football but I know when to battle and hopefully I can bring that right mix to the team.”
