Kilmarnock Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Ross Millen.

The 23-year-old right back arrives on a six-month contract after impressing during our pre-season training camps in La Manga and Largs.

After starting his career as a youth with Clyde and St Mirren, Ross made his breakthrough at Dunfermline Athletic in 2013.

Following spells with Livingston and Clyde, he made the move to Queen's Park under the guidance of Killie legend Gus MacPherson.

Two seasons with the Spiders followed before Ross, the son of our U20s coach Andy, decided to return to full-time football.

 

He said: "It's feels incredible to join Kilmarnock, I never thought it would happen but I'm over the moon to be here.

"I loved my time at Queen's Park under Gus MacPherson and I've got a lot of friends there so it will be good to see them again in the cup.

"I like to get forward and use the ball well. I want to learn from the older pros as well as the boys around my age too. I want to keep learning, push on and see where it takes me.

"That's the toughest pre-season I've ever done. Largs was really good and La Manga was a great experience and it will help me even more."

On his father's influence on his career, he added: "He's always stepped back and let me do my own thing to be honest and I really respect that but he's always been there when I've needed him."
