Lee McCulloch signs for Kilmarnock


Former Rangers captain Lee McCulloch has signed for Kilmarnock on a three year deal after his contract with the Ibrox side expired at the end of last season.

McCulloch will fill the dual role of player and assistant manager at Rugby Park, joining Kris Boyd and Stevie Smith in making the move to Ayrshire from the Championship side this summer.

The former Scotland international signed for Wigan Athletic from Motherwell in 2001 for £700,000, before making the move to Ibrox in July 2007 after then-manager Walter Smith paid £2,250,000 for his services.

McCulloch spent eight years at Ibrox playing 299 games and scoring 67 times. He won three Premier League titles, two Scottish Cups, three League Cups, the Scottish Third Division title and the League One title during his time with the Ibrox side.

His final game for Rangers was the 3-0 defeat to Motherwell in the Premiership Play-off final on 31st May at Fir Park.
