Livingston complete signing of striker Kurtis Guthrie from Indian Super League club SNS Group

Livingston have added striker Kurtis Guthrie on a two-year deal before the end of the transfer window.

The 29-year-old spent last season with Indian club RoundGlass Punjab where he scored 13 goals in 18 games.

Manager David Martindale revealed the forward had been training with the West Lothian outfit for several weeks before the move was completed.

The Lions hope to have international clearance granted in time for him to feature in Wednesday’s Premier Sports Cup second round tie with Dundee United.

Guthrie previously spent time with Bradford City, Colchester United and Port Vale among others in the English lower leagues.

He also has a cap for the England ‘C’ team, scoring in a 2-0 win over Ukraine in 2016.

Manager David Martindale said: “He can play anywhere across the front three and is happy doing so. Very athletic, good in the air and works hard for the team and for me, working hard for the team is a basic necessity to play for both myself and for Livingston. He certainly has that application to his game. 

“Kurtis has already been in training with the first team for over a week now and that’s given both me and Kurtis the chance to see if we were a good fit for one another and based on what we’ve both seen in that week, we’re both happy that we’ll work well for each other.”
