Scott Robinson says he’s returning to Killie as a much-improved player after signing a two-year deal in Ayrshire. Having played for the club previously during the 2015/2016 season, the 29-year-old returns for his second spell at Killie off the back of a successful season at Livingston.
Helping Livingston secure a top six finish and a Betfred Cup Final appearance, Scott netted six times for David Martindale’s side last season. He also scored a pivotal goal at Hampden Park which booked the Lions a place in the final.
Five years since he last played in the blue and white stripes, Robinson feels now is the perfect time for him to help Kilmarnock return to the Scottish Premiership as quickly as possible.
Robinson told Killie TV: “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, and 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 was playing a different position, a more defensive position at the time which wasn’t me. I have 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.
