@SpatestonBear2: “Looks like we have finally got our man in Kyle Lafferty. It seems to have taken forever but that’s just how it is when dealing with other Scottish clubs. Good to have the big man back.”

@DKeith0904: “Not wholly convinced about resigning Lafferty but the big fella is a big game player. Definitely something we’ve been missing”
