25-year-old Goran Subara did enough to convince The Glass Rabbits' manager Phil Stubbins to snap him up following games against Malaysian champions ATM FA and Singapore's Warriors FC.

After Subara’s first game as an official Bangkok Glass player in a 3-1 friendly win against Ayuthaya FC, Stubbins let on that he was satisfied with the defender’s performance.

"Today's his first game for us which he did great, having caught the supporters eyes," Stubbins said.

"His strength and versatility will be our greatest asset in seasons to come.”

Subara, who can also play in midfield, started out in the S.League with Gombak United in 2009, before then earning a move to Singapore Armed Forces FC (now Warriors FC) and helping them to finish third in the 2011/12 season.

The Australian moved to Balestier Khalsa for the next season, where he impressed immensely. A rock in central defence alongside skipper Paul Cunningham, the pair were part of a backline that only conceded a league-lowest 20 goals.

Subara will now ply his trade in the Thai League alongside former Perth Glory striker Billy Mehmet at Bangkok Glass, who recently failed in their bid to capture Singapore duo Shahril Ishak and Baihakki Khaizan.
