Portland Timbers sign ex-Rangers, Norwich defender Smith

Portland Timbers have announced the signing of Scottish defender Steven Smith.

The 26-year old left-back joins the club as an international player and will take a roster spot pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate.

Smith, who has previously played with Rangers, Norwich City, Aberdeen and Preston North End, comes to MLS with both Champions League and Europa League experience and will link up with former 'Gers teammate Kris Boyd at JELD-WEN Field.

"Steven has impressed us, both on the field and as a person, during his trial," said John Spencer, head coach of the Timbers.

"He is a hard-working defender who possesses a winning mentality. Steven has been a part of successful clubs throughout his career and has experience at high levels, including playing in the Champions League."
