However, this did not put an end to his soccer career, and he went about and did his business with Clyde in the Scottish leagues.

Later in January 2022, he again signed with Raith Rovers.

However, his signing faced strong opposition, resulting in the club deciding not to let him play. He was ultimately released from his contract in September 2022.

Now the voice for letting him play is emerging once again.

In a podcast, “Anything Goes,” the soccer player claims that “He does not feel like he has had justice and both parties have been left in limbo.”
