Kyle Lafferty returns to Kilmarnock

Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty has put pen to paper on a return to former club Kilmarnock until the end of the season.

Lafferty, 34, said he has some unfinished business at Rugby Park as he returns to help in Derek McInnes’ side’s bid to bounce back to the Scottish Premiership.

Lafferty, who is back in Ayshire following a spell in Cyprus with Anorthosis Famagusta,  netted 13 goals in 13 matches for Killie last season during his first spell with the club.

 “It’s a great feeling to be back at Kilmarnock, I feel I have unfinished business here,” he told the club’s website.

“The last time I played here we were relegated, which was a low point in my career so to get the opportunity to fix that and get Killie promoted back to the Premiership is something I’m excited about.

“I’m a huge admirer of Derek and his work at Aberdeen and getting the chance to work with him is really exciting.

“Where he wants to take the club and how he saw me fitting in ticked all the boxes for me.”
