Former Scotland winger Allan Johnston has signed a three-year contract with Kilmarnock after passing a medical.

The 30-year-old left Middlesbrough at the end of last season and turned down more lucrative offers from other clubs.

"If I was coming back to Scotland, I said that I would come to Kilmarnock because I had worked with Jim Jefferies and Billy Brown before," said Johnston.

"It's all about enjoying football and playing well. Killie are a good club as well so that helps."

He will don the Killie shirt for the first time in Tuesday evening's reserve game against Hibernian at Rugby Park and is set for his home first-team debut against Celtic on Saturday.

Johnston, who also played for Hearts, Rangers and Sunderland, hopes to revive his international career.

"I want to play for Scotland again, but the main thing is, hopefully, playing regularly again, playing well and enjoying my football again," he added.

"Hopefully, the Scotland thing will follow on from that."

Meanwhile, Kilmarnock have also rejected a bid from Boston United for striker Kris Boyd.
