Samson seals Kilmarnock move

Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels has confirmed the signing of St

Mirren goalkeeper Craig Samson.

Samson kept goal for the Buddies in their 3-1 win at Rugby Park

on Saturday in the sides’ final game of the season but will switch

sides next season.

He now returns to the club where he briefly played before, his

only appearance for Killie coming against Aberdeen in January

2004.

Samson is understood to have signed a two-year deal at

Kilmarnock with the option of a further year and Shiels was

delighted to land one of his transfer targets.

“It’s great to have Craig at the club and hopefully we can move

on and have a good season next year,” he said.
