Liam Kelly: On his way to Ashton Gate

The fee for the highly-rated 22-year-old was not disclosed by Robins boss Derek McInnes, who is delighted with his new signing.

"He has accumulated quite a lot of games and experience in the Scottish Premier League and has been a key player for Kilmarnock over the last few seasons," he told the club's website.

"He has amassed quite a lot of Under-21 games for Scotland and is now involved in the full senior squad as well.

"He is 22 years of age and that is a good age for us, which is important. We think we have got a very good deal for the club, considering he only had six months of his contract left and a few other clubs were looking at him.

"Liam is someone we think will only get better. He gets around the pitch, utilises the ball well and takes responsibility for his position."

Kelly, who has one full Scotland cap to his name, was born in Milton Keynes and came through the Dons' academy before joining Kilmarnock and he became the midfield lynchpin at Rugby Park.

Kelly was part of the team which won the Scottish League Cup in March when Kilmarnock upset the odds with a 1-0 win over Celtic at Hampden Park but tragically his father died of a heart attack whilst watching the match.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
