Glenavon have signed Greenock Morton striker Kevin Kelbie on a two-year contract.

Kelbie spent five seasons at Ballymena United prior to his move to Scotland at the start of last season, having scored 56 goals in 136 appearances for United.

"Kevin has proven what he can do in the Irish League and is keen to get back playing on a regular basis," said Glenavon manager Marty Quinn.

"He's a good player with a good attitude."

"He'll be a good character in the dressing room and on the pitch.

"I want to thank the Chairman and the Board for their hard work in bringing Kevin to the Club," added Quinn.

Glenavon chairman Adrian Teer had travelled to Glasgow to finalise the deal with the 26-year-old.
