Wighton joins Raith on loan

Craig Wighton has today joined Ladbrokes Championship side Raith Rovers on a six month loan deal.

The move sees Wighton reunite with Ray McKinnon. The young Dundee striker spent a short spell on loan under McKinnon’s stewardship last season at Brechin City.

Last season saw Wighton feature 16 times for Dundee in SPFL Premiership. He scored his first top flight goal against Partick Thistle at Dens Park.

At the age of 16, he became Dundee’s youngest ever goalscorer when he netted for Dundee against Raith Rovers at Dens in 2013.

Dundee face Raith at Starks Park in a pre-season friendly on the 15th of July.
