'The Good Doctor' Has High Hopes for MLS

Real Salt Lake signing Kenny Deuchar tells Scottish paper has hopes for his new move to MLS, the striker reveals in an interview with The Daily Record, calling the opportunity "the chance of a lifetime." Deuchar, a part-time practicing doctor who goes by the nickname "The Good Doctor,"spent four seasons in Scotland with Gretna, helping the club rise from the Scottish Third Division (fourth level) all the way to the SPL this season. He set a Third Division record for scoring with 41 goals in 41 appearances during the 2004-05 season. Last weekend, the 27-year-old Deuchar bagged a brace in his final game for Gretna, a 4-2 loss to Glasgow Rangers.
 
Deuchar called the opportunity "the chance of lifetime": "The move will open a lot of doors for me and gives me a chance to play in a league which is absolutely ready to take off, obviously with the signing of David Beckham at LA Galaxy and a lot of other top players," he said. "It will be great to be on the same pitch as a player of David Beckham's quality and standing in the game and the fact he decided to pursue his career in the USA speaks volumes."

RSL coach Jason Kreis on Wednesday told the Deseret Morning News  that a deal had been completed. "[Kenny] was a player we talked to a few weeks ago and knew there was a possibility of something," he said. "When you go to see a player play against Rangers and he scores twice, it's an element in the decision to sign him. We are very fortunate to have Kenny."
