Bookmakers Ladbrokes have hailed Alan Power’s move from Lincoln to Kilmarnock as the ‘SPFL Signing Of The Week’.

The Irishman called time on his Imps career a few days ago in favour of a new career in Scotland, penning a two-year contract with the Rugby Park outfit after rejecting the Imps’ offer of a one-year deal.

And Ladbrokes have deemed Killie’s signing of the Dublin-born midfielder as more significant than Celtic’s capture of Ipswich teen sensation Kundai Benyu and Hearts’ move for Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty. They said: ‘Lincoln City enjoyed an unforgettable campaign in 2016-17? and one man at the heart of that success was Alan Power. The combative midfielder played in every minute of Lincoln`s incredible cup run, and put in a series of stellar displays to negate star men for the likes of Burnley, Ipswich Town and Brighton & Hove Albion, as well as chalking up two vital goals along the way.

‘Having built up a reputation for his firm tackling in the National League, Killie fans won`t see him shirk any tackles ands with this young side arguably lacking something in experience and leadership, he also fills a vital gap on that front. If the club are to push on and crack the top six next season, Power could well be the key difference-maker.’
