Premiership club fans laud ex Rangers star after latest stunning display

Kilmarnock fans have lauded former Rangers star Kyle Lafferty after his latest stunning display for the relegation-threatened Premiership club.

Lafferty, who played 164 times and scored 40 goals for the Gers across two spells at Ibrox, joined Killie in February on a short-term deal after a stint in Italy with Reggina ended early.

He made an immediate impact at Rugby Park, notching an assist in a 1-1 draw with Dundee United in his first start.


The Northern Ireland international was unlucky not to score in that game but the goals have started to flow since then.

He netted a brace in a 3-2 defeat to Ross County at the beginning of the month and then, after a weekend off, he returned with a bang against Motherwell on Saturday afternoon.

Lafferty scored in the first minute in Ayrshire as his left-footed effort from outside the area escaped Liam Kelly’s clutches and found the top right corner.

The towering forward then went on to play a role in his side’s second goal, scored by Rory McKenzie, before assisting Mitchell Pinnock seven minutes from time as the hosts ran out 4-1 winners.

Plenty of Killie supporters were delighted with Lafferty’s efforts and praised him heavily on social media after the game, with some imploring their club to sign him up to a longer-term deal.

Here’s a selection of reactions to his Man of the Match performance:

The win took Kilmarnock off the bottom of the table, but they are only a point above Hamilton Accies and one behind tenth-placed Ross County.

Lafferty isn’t the only former Rangers striker impressing right now, though, with another on fire in a European top-flight league.
