Kyle Lafferty joins Kilmarnock

Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty has been snapped up by Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock on a deal which will run until the end of the current campaign.

The 33-year-old, who was a free agent following his release by Italian side Reggina last month, becomes the first signing for Killie’s new boss and former Northern Ireland goalkeeper Tommy Wright who was appointed to the job earlier this week.

The much-travelled Fermanagh man, who has scored 20 goals in 79 appearances at full international level, will return to Scotland for a third spell having previously played for Rangers (twice) and Hearts during his long career.

During a successful first stint with Rangers, Lafferty helped the Glasgow giants to three League titles and a Scottish Cup and scoring 38 goals in 137 appearances over a four-year period at Ibrox.

Over the course of his 15-year professional career he has also experienced football in Switzerland, Turkey and Norway as well as in the Premier League in England with Norwich City.
