Goalkeeper Youseff Bejaoui has confirmed that he has signed a new contract to play with Berwick during 2012-13.

Manager Ian Little is currently away with the Scotland Over 35 team on a tour of Thailand, whilst his assistant Robbie Horn is undergoing his Uefa B badge at Largs.

But this week, Moroccan Bejaoui revealed on Twitter that he has agreed a new deal to join the new-look Shielfield set-up.

The stopper played on loan with Rangers from Cowdenbeath towards the end of last season and got a run in the team when regular keeper Jamie Barclay was rested with hand and thigh injuries.

And in a posting on Twitter he said he was ‘really looking forward’ to playing with the third division outfit.

“The gaffer had some really good ideas which rubbed off,” he said.

“’Yano’ (Little) and Robbie (Horn) have the same philosophy and I have a really good feeling about next season.

“Let’s go out and get promotion to the second division.

“Got to admit the clubs should go down the route of young, fresh managers - just look what happened at Cowdenbeath last season.”

Only last week Little revealed that he had also been approached by former keeper Ian McAldon about a possible return.

McAldon played as understudy to Mark Peet during the 2010-11 season but missed the whole of the last campaign after injuring his back during the summer.

Little and Horn, despite their busy schedules, are currently involved in talks with several players with a view to putting together a squad for their first full season in charge at the Border club.

Rangers, meanwhile, have revealed that they are currently in negotiations with a number of clubs, including two SPL sides, regarding pre-season friendlies at Shielfield.

They are also talking with an English league side about another possible fixture.
