STUART Findlay has rejoined Kilmarnock on loan for the duration of the 2024/25 campaign.

The 28-year-old centre back spent last season on loan at Kilmarnock, helping the side to fourth place in the Scottish Premiership and a spot in next season’s Europa League second qualifying round.

He started 37 of Kilmarnock’s 38 league games, and made a further nine appearances in cup competitions.

This will now be his fifth stint with the Rugby Park outfit, following loans from Celtic and Newcastle United, before joining permanently in July 2018.

Findlay then signed for Major League Soccer side Philadelphia Union in February 2021, prior to joining Oxford United in July 2022.

The defender, who has got another two years on his U’s contract, played 44 times for United during the 2022/23 season, before heading to Kilmarnock on loan for the most recent campaign.

Kilmarnock said in a statement announcing the news: “We are delighted to announce that Stuart Findlay will rejoin the club for the 2024/25 season, pending approval on an extension of our existing loan agreement with Oxford United.

“The Scotland international made 47 appearances for us in all competitions last season.

“Findlay is no stranger to Rugby Park, this will mark his fifth spell with us here in Ayrshire.”
