Hay returns to seek Glory in A-league

Perth Glory has signed former New Zealand Knights captain Danny Hay to a four-week deal following an injury to defender Ante Kovacevic.

Hay is a blast from the past for Glory, having taken out the club's best and fairest award during his short but impressive stint in the west from 1997-99.

He followed that by accepting an offer to play for then-English Premier League outfit Leeds United.

The New Zealand international is a timely signing for coach Alan Vest as central defenders David Tarka and Kovacevic continue to be plagued by injuries, leaving skipper Jamie Harnwell as the only fit regular centre-half.

Hay is looking forward to the challenge of helping the Glory push for a spot in the A-League playoffs.

"When I got the call from (Glory technical director) Mich (d'Avray) it was something to relish and an opportunity to come over here and help them out," Hay said.

"They're in a little bit of a pickle in terms of a few injuries in the centre-half department so it's just nice to be able to come out and help out my old team and hopefully help them push for that finals spot."

Without much recent competitive football under his belt, Vest doesn't expect Hay to play a major role in Saturday night's crunch game against Queensland Roar, meaning central midfielder Simon Colosimo should line up alongside Harnwell in the defence.

"I haven't really trained, in terms of football training, in the last five or six weeks," Hay said.

"I just sort of kept myself ticking over with a few road runs. In this heat, it's a little bit difficult but hopefully if called upon I can get through whatever's necessary."

The 30-year-old left the Knights in acrimonious circumstances just before Christmas, but was unable to comment on what led to his departure.

He played nine games for the A-League cellar-dweller.
