Manager Gary Locke told Kilmarnock’s official website: “Lots of clubs were after Stevie and I am delighted we have been the one to sign him. He has bags of experience, comes from a great pedigree and fills a problem position for us.”

Smith, who made 34 appearances in the last two seasons with Rangers, added: “I am really pleased to have signed for Killie and I’m looking forward to the season starting. My focus now though is on getting a good pre-season under my belt, starting with the training camp in Lilleshall this week.”
