Former Rangers forward Kyle Lafferty is on the search for a new club following a mutual agreement reached with Anorthosis Famagusta in order to terminate his contract.

Lafferty signed with the side who have won 13 Cypriot First Division titles in the summer following his departure from Kilmarnock after they were relegated to the Championship.

The Northern Irishman made just eleven appearances for Famagusta, scoring one goal and he will now be looking for his 15th different club in what has proved to be a nomadic playing career.


“Anorthosis Famagusta announces the mutually agreed solution of its cooperation with the football player Kyle Lafferty,” a club statement said [Anorthosis].

“We would like to thank the footballer for his positive attitude towards the solution of our cooperation and we wish him every success on a personal and professional level.”

He first came to prominence with Burnley before moving to Rangers in the summer of 2008. He was a key part of the side that won three league titles in a row, becoming a clutch player as his goals against Hibs in 2010 and a sublime hat-trick against Kilmarnock in 2011 secured the league trophy for the Ibrox side.

The forward made a return to Rangers under Steven Gerrard during 2018 and scored six goals as the side qualified for the group stages of the Europa League during the Englishman’s first season in charge.

With the 34-year-old having played for clubs all over Europe, he may well make a return to Scotland. Only time will tell.

Meanwhile, Rangers youngster James Maxwell has been linked to Leeds Utd following his impressive performances on loan at Ayr Utd this season.
