Lang, 26, has departed Kirkcaldy after making 40 appearances for Raith since the 2021-22 campaign.

His time with Rovers was severely disrupted by an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) knee injury, which kept him out for 10 months before he returned to the fold in January.

“He’s a winner and he influences the team with his attitude,” he said. “He would run through brick walls to win challenges, to win headers, to block shots, all while being able to play at the same time.”

As for Spencer, McGlynn added: “He’s got great experience and has been excelling in the Championship for the past four years.

“He’s a central midfield player who can go from box to box, he can build the game, he’s got a great passing range and he’s got a bit of dig about him as well. He’s got a good engine, lots of energy.”
