Former Celtic midfielder Paul McGowan has departed Dundee after some bizarre events.

The ex-Hoops academy man is now 35 years old and has been on the books at Dens Park since 2014.

McGowan spent the end of this season on loan at Dunfermline Athletic, and will now be looking for a new club after being released by Dundee.

The newly promoted Premiership side confirmed the news on Thursday morning, but only after they had announced the rest of their departures.

This was due to them not being able to get in contact with McGowan. Bizarre stuff.

A club statement on Wednesday had said: “The Club has been unable to get in touch with Paul McGowan and an update will be given regarding Paul once contact has been made with him.”

A club unable to get in contact with their own player, to tell them that their nine-year stay is over.

It’s just another example of the circus that is Scottish football rearing its head again.

Scottish football may often be lacking in quality, but it more than makes up for it with spellbinding story lines and small-time drama.

Time will tell where McGowan in playing his football next season.

Will he be joining Dundee and ourselves in the Premiership or will he find a club outside of Scottish football’s top-flight?

Let’s hope he’s more easy to contact throughout the summer.
