Kilmarnock have moved to ease boss Angelo Alessio’s striking worries by re-signing Liverpool forward Liam Millar on another season-long loan.
The Italian was left complaining last week that he does not have enough options to choose from in a number of key positions having signed just two players to replace the nine who left the club over the summer.
His biggest concern was the fact he only had one forward in Eamonn Brophy but the Scotland striker will now have competition from Canada international Millar.
The 19-year-old spent the second half of last season at Rugby Park, helping Killie achieve their best league finish in 53 years under former boss Steve Clarke.
He scored just once in 14 appearances for the club but his last-minute winner against St Mirren in March proved crucial as Kilmarnock held off Aberdeen on goal difference to finish third.
Millar now returns to Ayrshire having featured twice for Canada during their CONCACAF Gold Cup run before also playing for Jurgen Klopp’s European champions in a friendly against Bradford.
