Having previously signed a one-year deal, Kinglsey has now extended his stay to the end of next season, manager Robbie Neilson expressing his delight at him doing so: “I’m delighted that we’ve got this one over the line.

“Stephen is a top quality player and has made a real impact since joining the squad. I know he’s popular with the fans and it’s great that they will get to see him pull on the maroon jersey for another 18 months and, of course, it’s a real boost for us to retain the services of a top, top player.”
