The 20 year old, who as a youth enjoyed spells at St Mirren, Partick Thistle and Celtic, comes to the Exsel Group Stadium having proved a massive success whilst at junior sides Ardeer Juniors and most recently Kilwinning Rangers.

The Irvine born goalscorer expressed his delight at signing for the Rovers.

“I am delighted to have finally joined Albion Rovers, it’s felt like a long slow process but now that things are completed I can look forward to the season ahead.”

“My main ambition for the season has to be aiming for a promotion or play-off spot, with the club having just missed out last season. In terms of my own personal goals, I hope that I can contribute to getting into the play-offs as much as I can by getting as many goals as possible.”

“In terms of my playing style, I wouldn’t say that I am a certain kind of striker, I always just try to play the best way suited to the team. If that means running in behind or holding the ball up then I’ll try to do that as best as I can. As well as trying to be a threat in the air inside the box, I also try to get myself into as many goal-scoring opportunities as possible.”

With Ryan Wallace and Calum Ferguson already signed for the 2016/17 season, Darren Young feels that the signing of Stewart is a vital one, allowing a different kind of option to what we already have in our ranks.

“Ross will be a good signing for the club. He is different to Ryan and Calum as he’s six foot four.”

Young added: “He has good feet for a big man, holds the ball up well and has an eye for goal. He should compliment the two other strikers that we have. If he works hard and continues to improve there’s no reason he can’t go on to an even higher level.”
