The 28-year-old, who is the son of legendary Glens defender Mark Glendinning, makes the move to The Oval after five years at Ballymena United.

Glendinning, who also spent seven years at Linfield, spent a brief spell with Glentoran as a teenager and Head Coach Mick McDermott is delighted to bring him back to the club.

He told the club website: “I’m delighted to have Ross joining Glentoran. He has a wealth of experience in the Irish League and has shown his quality over numerous seasons.

"Everyone knows Ross has history with our club, his family has a strong bond with our Club and when we approached him about joining Glentoran he immediately said ‘yes’.

"That, to me, was massive in our decision to sign him - his desire to be at our club and to be successful with Glentoran was transparent throughout our talks.

"I am very much looking forward to having Ross join the squad for pre-season training.

"I’d like to thank Ballymena United FC for their professionalism in recent days in assisting with Ross’ transition to Glentoran FC.”
