GREG Kiltie has had his loan spell at Dunfermline cut short after being recalled by Kilmarnock.

The forward's future had been up in the air after his parent club sacked Angelo Alessio in December.

His replacement, Alex Dyer, has now brought Kiltie back to Killie after impressing during his time at East End Park.

The Pars have this afternoon confirmed that the 22-year-old has played his final game in club colours.

Athletic tweeted: "Dunfermline Athletic Football Club can confirm that Greg Kiltie has been recalled by parent club Kilmarnock.

"Everyone at East End Park would like to thank Greg for his efforts and wish him all the best for the future."

He signed for the Pars on a season-long move in the summer with a recall option available to the Premiership side.

He is the fourth loan player to leave the club in a week.

Hearts pair Harry Cochrane and Anthony McDonald returned to Tynecastle last Friday, while Norwich City recalled Josh Coley on Tuesday.
