Tommy Wright has made his first signing as Kilmarnock boss as he moves for former Burnley and Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty on a deal until the end of the season.

Th 33-year-old has had a well-travelled career in football. He started out at Burnley, making 86 appearances. He has most notably represented Rangers, Hearts, Norwich City and Sunderland.

He has also had numerous stints abroad, playing in Italy with Palermo, Switzerland with FC Sion, Turkey with Caykur Rizespor and Norway with Sarpsborg 08 FF. Most recently, he returned to Italy at Reggina 1914.

That spell ended last month after nine matches and he looked set to join Romanian side Sepsi, but the former Burnley man didn’t make the move as another foreign deal fell through. Now he’s back for a fourth crack at Scottish football.

Lafferty’s debut could come at a familiar place, away to Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday. Kilmarnock currently sit 10th in the table, having failed to score in five of their last six matches, winning two of their last 14 games.
