Mulumbu re-joins Kilmarnock on loan until the summer

YOUSSOUF MULUMBU has re-joined Kilmarnock this evening after agreeing a loan move from Celtic.

The midfielder will join up with Steve Clarke’s side until the end of the season, as confirmed by reports on the BBC.

The midfielder joined Celtic at the close of the summer window after leaving Kilmarnock. He was a free agent at the time of signing for Celtic and at the time was seen as the alternative to John McGinn who opted for Aston Villa rather than his boyhood heroes, Celtic.

Mulumbu made only 3 appearances for Celtic and looked well off the pace in his last game in the Europa League and the emergence of Ryan Christie as a first team star meant that the former West Brom man was deemed surplus to requirements by Brendan Rodgers.

Kilmarnock are third in the top flight, six points behind leaders Celtic.

Mulumbu was blamed by many Celtic supporters as being the source of the ‘information’ that Kilmarnock bench-warmer Kris Boyd was using to unsettle Celtic in the early part of the season, although nothing was ever proved.

Mulumbu is the second Celt to head for Ayrshire this evening with young Calvin Miller heading to Ayr Utd.
