New deal for Kyle Lafferty at Kilmarnock

Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty will be playing in the Scottish Premiership next season after signing a new one-year deal with newly-promoted Kilmarnock.

The 34-year-old began his second spell with the club in January and scored eight goals in 14 games as the Ayrshire outfit secured a quick return back to the top flight as champions.

“I’m delighted to sign a new contract and extend my stay with Kilmarnock,” Lafferty told the club website. “I’ve enjoyed every minute since coming back and winning the league title at Rugby Park in the way that we did was a really special night in my career.

“The manager has been fantastic with me and all the lads here,” added the Fermanagh man who has scored 21 goals in 28 appearances across two stints with the club. “And together with the support of the fans, we’re all looking forward to more exciting times in the Scottish Premiership.”

Lafferty has scored 20 goals in 85 full internationals for Northern Ireland.
