Former Bairns keeper Jamie MacDonald signs for Kilmarnock


Former Hearts goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald has signed a three year deal with Kilmarnock, after his one year deal at Falkirk ended.

MacDonald becomes Kilmarnock’s second signing ahead of the new season.

Speaking to the official Kilmarnock website, MacDonald said: “I am delighted to have signed for Kilmarnock and to be playing in the Ladbrokes Premiership again. I’m really looking forward to working with Gary and helping the Club progress next season.”

MacDonald signed for Falkirk last summer after he was released by Hearts, where he had been since a youth, making nearly 120 appearances for the club.

Kilmarnock manager Gary Locke, was delighted to secure MacDonald’s signature, he commented: “I am pleased to have signed Jamie, he is a top goalkeeper at a good age and will give us competition in that area. I believe a few clubs were after him so I am delighted he has chosen Kilmarnock.”

A statement on the official Falkirk website read: “We were keen to keep him but negotiations never really got off the ground. Jamie served us well during his season here and he leaves with our best wishes for the future.”
