League One Bury have pulled off a major transfer coup by snapping up Northern Ireland striker David Healy.

Healy, who enjoyed spells in the Premier League with Fulham and Sunderland, has joined the Shakers on a 12 month deal after leaving Scottish club Rangers when they went into administration.

Subject to international clearance from Scotland, and his former club Rangers, Bury caretaker boss Peter Shirtliff is hopeful he will be included in Saturday’s squad for the game at Coventry City.

The Killyleagh-born frontman is the Northern Ireland all-time leading goal scorer with 35 goal and also holds the record for the highest scoring tally during a UEFA European Championship with 13 goals.

Bury go into Saturday’s clash with just a single point from the opening two games in League One.
