The former Manchester City and Hibs defender has penned a two-year deal at The Showgrounds.

The versatile defender returned to Northern Ireland in 2018 signing a three-year deal with the Blues after ten years plying his trade in England.

During that spell McGivern also played 24 times for his country.
