The permanent signing of Scottish striker Ryan Hardie in January 2021 was welcomed with excitement from the Argyle supporters.
Two previous loan spells at Home Park had seen Hardie score 10 goals in 33 matches and become an integral part in Argyle’s promotion from Sky Bet League Two.
A pacey forward who has deadly finishing ability, Hardie began his career at Glasgow Rangers, making 17 appearances for the Ibrox club.
His career progressed with loan deals, including a prolific two-season spell at Livingston.
Hardie has represented Scotland at all age levels, scoring one goal in eight matches for the under-21 side. Soon, his talents were spotted south of the border, and he was snapped up by League One side Blackpool for an undisclosed fee in 2019.
