Kilmarnock have signed former striker Scott Robinson on a two-year deal from Livingston as manager Tommy Wright makes his fourth signing of the transfer window.

The Rugby Park club cleared the decks as over half of the 2020/21 squad departed the club inside 24 hours of their relegation to the Scottish Championship. Wright has been backed by the board and Robinson is his fourth signing after Dunfermline captain Euan Murray, Falkirk’s Blair Alston and Raith Rovers’ Daniel Armstrong.

Robinson spent a season at Kilmarnock during the 15/16 campaign and he says he’s a much better player than before: “It feels great to be back at this massive club and hopefully we can get back to the Premiership as soon as possible. The manager’s record at St Johnstone was outstanding and someone I would like to play under.

“He sold it to me right away. The fans will see a massive difference in me. Before I had a couple of injury problems and playing a different position, a more defensive position at the time which wasn’t me. I’ve had to go away and start from part-time football at East Fife and work my way up in forward areas.

“I’ve done that and now it is up to me to show that I should be here and I am the right man.”

 

Murray, Wright’s first recruit of four inside 72 hours, says he couldn’t turn down Killie when the opportunity arose: “As soon as I heard about the interest from the club, I knew this was where I wanted to commit my future. The manager made it clear that he wanted me, and I’m just around the corner from Rugby Park. I can’t wait to get started!”
