Profile

With excess of 400 senior appearances, the 33-year old Ghanaian brings a wealth of experience to the side, having played in the top two tiers of the SPFL, as well as League 1 & 2 in England and the top flight in Greece. Standing at 6 foot tall, he provides a real presence in the middle of the park.

'Abs' started his career at Hampton & Richmond Borough and also represented Watford and Maidenhead United as a youngster. He moved north of the border in 2007 to sign for Gretna in the Premier League, before the Anvil's administration saw him become a free agent.

A fruitful 3 season spell with Northampton Town followed, where he notably netted the winning penalty at the Kop end to help the Cobblers knock Liverpool out of the League Cup in September 2010.

He then headed across Europe in 2011, signing for Kerkyra in the Greek Superleague where he spent a season before returning to the UK with Crewe Alexandra where he was a mainstay of the side in League One.

The well-travelled midfielder was back up north to join Partick Thistle - then of the Scottish Premiership - where he served as club captain for much of his 4 years at the Firhill side.

After his departure from the Jags, Osman had another spell in Greece with Lamia before returning to play for Falkirk, Queen of the South and most recently Dartford in England.
