Kilmarnock manager Tommy Wright says former Rangers right-back Lee Hodson ‘can play a few different positions’ after the former Ibrox and Hamilton man joined his squad.

Hodson has had multiple spells in Scottish football, one of which was at the Scottish Championship club under Lee Clark. He’s also been at Rangers with Ibrox, Hamilton in South Lanarkshire and a short Paisley stint at St Mirren. But now he rejoins Kilmarnock and Wright is pleased with the capture.

He said: “I want to have a squad that has real competition all over the park and right back was one position where I only had one senior player in Jason Naismith. I worked with the Northern Ireland squad when Lee was in it and I was aware that he was training with Dundee and was still available.

“We had a quick chat with him before the window shut and we’ve moved it on since then. I’m pleased to get him in, he’s experienced and will provide real competition and he can play a few different positions: right and left back and he has played in central midfield role and in a back three.

“With COVID still ongoing, we need a squad to cope with injuries and COVID. I’m pleased to get him in and I think he’ll be a really good addition to the team and the squad.”
