Goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara has become the latest player to sign a new contract with Kilmarnock for next season.

The 28-year-old, who has two caps for the Republic of Ireland, moved to Rugby Park last summer following his departure from Colchester.

Despite operating as understudy to on-loan Bournemouth keeper Will Dennis and being restricted to just four appearances last term, O’Hara has agreed to remain with the Ayrshire club.

“We are delighted to announce that Kieran O’Hara has agreed a contract extension that will see him stay at Rugby Park, pending SFA approval,” Kilmarnock said in a statement.

“The Republic of Ireland-capped goalkeeper has penned a one-year contract extension and will link up with the squad when the return for pre-season on Thursday.”

O’Hara, Innes Cameron, Liam Polworth and Gary Mackay-Steven were all due to be out of contract this summer but have now pledged themselves to Killie on new deals, while it was confirmed earlier this month that Stuart Findlay is returning on another season-long loan from Oxford.
