Rutkiewicz enjoyed First Division title success with Dunfermline

Dunfermline manager Jim McIntyre has added St Johnstone defender Kevin Rutkiewicz to his squad for their return to the Scottish Premier League.

The 31-year-old was on loan at the Fife club from February and made 12 appearances in the First Division as they clinched the title.

His one-year deal follows that given to midfielder Paul Burns on Tuesday.

Rutkiewicz began his career at Aberdeen and was there for six seasons before John Connolly signed him for Saints.
