Former Rangers right-back Lee Hodson has returned to Kilmarnock as the ex-Hamilton and Ibrox man joins the Scottish Championship club for a second time.

Hodson has been in Scottish football previously with Rangers at Ibrox and with Hamilton in South Lanarkshire. He also spent time at St Mirren but now moves to Kilmarnock on a one-year contract. Hodson’s original Rugby Park spell came in the second half of the 2015/16 season as Lee Clark’s side won the Premiership play-off against Falkirk.

Speaking of his move, the right-back said: “I was interested in coming back as soon as I heard of Killie’s interest, knowing the size of the club and the journey it is on to get back to the Premiership. I wanted to be a part of that and help take this club back to where it belongs. I had good memories of playing in front of the fans here.

“I’m more experienced but I still give it my all on the pitch for the club and want to win every game. The play off game here always sticks in my mind for the emotion and atmosphere they created in the ground. You could see how much it all meant to the supporters and the community.

“Last time my spell here ended on a high note and come the end of the season, hopefully we can have another sort of celebration.”
