The former Dunfermline captain has slammed the door to join the club which has just been relegated to the Scottish Second Division. Euan Murray is now a member of Kylie, at the request of new manager Tommy Wright.
High-demand centre-back Euan Murray, who scored seven goals last season, signs a two-year contract after leaving Parc and becomes Kilmarnock’s first signing of the summer. Steinhausmuir, 27, will bring his rich defensive experience to the club after playing for Wraith Rovers and Dunfermline Athletic.
Knowing the area well, Euan Murray lives in the city of Kilmarnock, just minutes from his new club’s stadium. The defender said signing for the club from his hometown was an easy decision.
“As soon as I heard of the club’s interest, I knew this was where I wanted to continue my career. The manager made it clear that he wanted me, and that I was near the rugby park. I Can’t wait to get started,” Yuan Murray said after signing.
“Yuan is someone I’ve known for a while. Firstly, he’s a very good player and it’s nice that he lives nearby. When I first came I said I wanted players who had a Get recognition and connect with fans. It’s important that we have players who know what it means for the region. He’s a leader, he’s aggressive in his defense and he’s a handful in both boxes I am really happy to have him on board,” Kylie’s manager Tommy Wright told the club’s official website.
