Kilmarnock have signed the Nigeria midfielder Reuben Gabriel.

The 22-year-old was most recently with Kano Pillars in his homeland and was part of the Nigeria squad that won the Africa Cup of Nations this year.

He joins up with compatriot Rabiu Ibrahim whom Kenny Shiels signed from Celtic in January.

Gabriel will go straight into Shiels' squad for Wednesday's Scottish Premier League encounter with St Mirren at Rugby Park.
