Friday 18th Aug... Killie today announced that they have signed Spaniard David Fernandez on a two year deal with an option to extend until May 31 2009. Fernandez will be given squad number 20.

Fernandez forged a reputation as one of the most skilful players in Scotland during his first spell at Livingston, prompting then Celtic manager Martin O'Neill to spend 1million to bring him to Parkhead in 2002. But the striker's career never took off in Glasgow and after a fruitless season he was loaned back to Livingston.

During his three seasons on Celtic's books Fernandez started just three league matches and it was no surprise that he was released when his contract expired in 2005. Dundee United moved for him and he was a regular in the Tannadice team last season. But when Gordon Chisholm was sacked as manager, and replaced by Craig Brewster, Fernandez found himself surplus to requirements on Tayside.

Brewster targeted five of the club's high earners as he set about rebuilding the club, and Fernandez became available for Killie to sign

David was originally brought to Scotland by Stevie Archibald, the then Airdrie manager (along with San Juan & Calderon (left)) Coincidence that all 3 ended up playing for Killie?.

David Fernandez was out for the rest of the 06-07 season with cruciate ligament damage. The former Celtic forward was carried off on a stretcher following a late tackle by Hoops defender Gary Caldwell during the Glasgow side's 2-1 Bank of Scotland Premier League win at Rugby Park on Sunday Oct 29th 2006.

Killie boss Jim Jefferies revealed a scan on Fernandez's left knee had confirmed his worst fears.

Thirty-year-old Spanish forward Fernandez had been returning to top form, after moving from Dundee United to Killie in August.
