His contract at Stark’s Park will begin in June and run until June 2023.

Speaking to the Raith Rovers website the club’s management team of John McGlynn and Paul Smith said they already have one eye on next season.

“On the back of Ross Matthews agreeing a three year deal we follow that up with the pre-contract agreement with Tom Lang.

"Tom’s a player we have had our eye on for the last couple of years, ever since we both returned to the club.

"We’ve followed his career and feel he is now at a perfect age, having gained great experience working under Danny Lennon at Clyde, and ready to establish himself in our team.

“Tom is a 6’ 2″ central defender who, having come through the academies at Birmingham and Rangers, can pass the ball out of defence but having gained experience in the lower leagues in Scotland he can defend as well.

“We look forward to working with Tom when we start pre-season training in June this year”.
