“Robert is a player I tried to sign when he left Portadown to re-join Linfield in 2017,” boss Gary Hamilton told Glenavon FC website.

“I’m delighted to get him over the line. He’s a guy with massive experience of this league and thankfully, now we’ve got him, I think he’ll add to us and be a big lift around the club which we need at this minute in time.

"Hopefully he will go on and perform they way I know he can.”
