The towering keeper, who was born in Stepps, has been capped for Scotland at under-17, 19 and 21 level.

Airdrie goalkeeper coach David Hutton told the club’s website: “I’ve worked with Kieran before. He’s a hungry young goalkeeper who was very keen to join the club when he heard of our interest.

“He’s good with his feet, and a great shot-stopper. You don’t spend that long at Rangers if you haven’t got a bit about you!

“I’m really looking forward to working with him - and I’m delighted that I’ve got two top goalies competing for the jersey.”
