Rory Boulding: Released by Kilmarnock in January

The 24-year-old has been signed to cover for the loss of Johnny Russell, who is out for the remainder of the campaign after suffering a broken leg.

Boulding played for Mansfield, Bradford and Accrington Stanley before signing for Livingston, scoring 12 goals in 29 games last season.

He was snapped up by Kilmarnock on a three-year contract in the summer, but he made only four appearances - three as substitute - before his contract was terminated in January.

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara said: "With Johnny Russell's injury, we are short on forwards and when I heard Rory was available I moved quickly to bring him in for a trial.

"He has shown me he can offer us something with his energetic and busy style so I am delighted to have him sign a contract. He is fit enough to be considered for action immediately and I think he is someone the United fans will quickly grow to enjoy."

Boulding added: "After being offered the chance to come in and show my worth here, I am delighted to sign this contract which gives me a further opportunity to win a longer term deal at the Club.

"The ability within this squad is excellent and I want to be part of that. The Manager has a vision of how he wants to take this Club forward and to be offered the chance to be involved is something I am looking forward to."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
