‘Well boss Stephen Robinson spoke of his delight at securing his first two new recruits of the summer.
Inverness Caley’s top-scorer Alex Fisher and Coventry City’s Player of the Year Gaël Bigirimana have both signed on two-year deals.
Both rejected lucrative offers from elsewhere, instead opting to join the Steelmen for the new 2017/18 campaign.
And the former Northern Irish National team assistant was quick to heap praise on both: “We aren’t able to offer the best wages about, but what we did is sell a vision of what we want to do and the togetherness we want to bring to the football club.”
Expanding on Alex Fisher, the Fir Park gaffer said: “His stats in terms of how he finished the season, 8 goals in 9 games, Speaks for itself.
“However, what impressed me very much was the different type of goals that he scored. He’s played in the Scottish Premiership, so is familiar with the league and will give us height and strength in attack.

“He is someone we identified early and did our homework on. I watched all of his games and he really impressed me. I’ve also spoke to a number of people in the game about him and they couldn’t speak higher of him. He’s a great lad and will be a good addition to our dressing room.”
And on the capture of the Burundi International, the 42-year old said: “He’s another who we have had several attempts at recruiting; it’s a big, big coup for us to get Gael here.
“He brings a real composure to the midfield, something that perhaps we’ve missed, someone to dictate and run the game.
“He certainly provide that, but he also bring energy and a vast amount of experience at a good level for such a young guy.
“He’s showed a real hunger and desire to come and play with us and I am really looking forward to working with him.”
