Gallacher Signs For Saints
4th January 2022
The Club is delighted to announce the signing of Tony Gallacher from Liverpool.
The 22-year-old left-sided defender moves to McDiarmid Park on a contract until the summer of 2024.
Tony broke into the Falkirk first team as a teenager and then moved to Liverpool in a six-figure transfer fee in 2018.
He spent part of last season on loan at Toronto FC on loan and then returned to Anfield.
He is now looking forward to the next stage of his career and wants to become a first-team regular at Saints.
Gallacher said: "I'm really excited about my move to St Johnstone and can't wait to get started.
"I had a great time at Liverpool and I'd like to thank everyone there for looking after me and helping me to improve as a footballer and teach me so many good habits.
"I feel very lucky to have been part of a massive Football Club with so many wonderful professionals and people. It was an incredible education.
"But I felt the time was right to look for first-team football and an exciting opportunity presented itself at St Johnstone.
"Having been out on loan at Toronto, I enjoyed my time there and it made me want more and more first-team football.
"It's now up to me to show everyone at St Johnstone that I'm good enough to play regular first-team football and that's what I plan to do.
"My preference is to play on the left-hand side as I feel I have good energy to get up and down and can deliver crosses into the box. I also enjoy the defensive side of the game.
"My immediate aim is to work hard and integrate with the group. Team spirit is so important and I know it's a really good squad at St Johnstone.
"There will be a feeling of positivity going into the second half of the season. We then need to take that into games and we will.
"It's vital to win games of football and I am confident we will do that to move away from the bottom end of the table."
