DUNDEE United have signed former Kilmarnock forward Rory Boulding on a short-term contract until the season’s end.
The 6ft 1in Englishman played for Mansfield Town, Bradford City and Accrington Stanley before a spell at Livingston last season, in which he scored 12 goals in 29 games. Following a pre-season trial at Hearts, he joined Kilmarnock on a three-year contract, but after playing four games for the Ayrshire club, he was released from his contract in January.
Manager Jackie McNamara said: “With Johnny Russell’s injury, we are short on forwards, and when I heard Rory was available I moved quickly to bring him in for a trial. He has shown me he can offer us something with his energetic and busy style, so I am delighted to have him sign a contract.
“He is fit enough to be considered for action immediately and I think he is someone the United fans will quickly grow to enjoy. He offers us a different presence from what we have available currently and he is keen to show he deserves a longer deal, so this deal makes sense for both parties.”
