Ross Perry (born 7 February 1990) is a Scottish footballer centre back who plays for Clyde. He has previously played for Rangers, Oxford United, Falkirk, Raith Rovers, Northampton Town and Brechin City.

Career[edit]

Perry's first appearance for Rangers came in a post-season friendly match against Los Angeles Galaxy at the Home Depot Center, coming on as a substitute for David Weir. This made him the first player born in the 1990s to play for the Rangers first team. Perry signed a two-year contract extension in October 2007.[1]

On 28 August 2009, he joined Oxford United on a season-long loan.[2] On 11 February 2011, he joined Falkirk in another loan spell, until the end of the 2010–11 season.[3]

Perry made his professional Rangers debut in the Scottish Premier League on 13 August 2011, replacing Kyle Bartley in a match against Inverness CT.[4] A week later, Perry was given his first start for Rangers, and played the full 90 minutes, helping keep a clean sheet in a 3–0 win away to Motherwell.[5]

On 9 September 2011, Perry signed a new four-year contract with Rangers.[6] The company operating Rangers entered administration in 2012 and was unable to agree a deal with its creditors. Perry's contract was transferred to the new company operating the club.[7]

Perry suffered ankle ligament damage during a pre-season friendly which meant that he did not play at all during the 2013–14 season.[8] His contract with Rangers was cancelled by mutual consent in June 2014.[9] In July 2014 Perry signed for Raith Rovers on a short term deal.[8][10] He left when this expired in early January 2015.[11] He signed a short-term contract with Northampton Town in March 2015,[12] however left the club in May 2015 without making any appearances.[13] Perry then signed for Scottish League One side Brechin City in July 2015.[14]
