Liam Kelly celebrated his new contract with a first-half double against Hibernian to send Kilmarnock into fifth place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League courtesy of a 2-1 victory.

The midfielder, who signed a two-and-a-half year deal on Friday, finished off assists from Ben Gordon with either foot to continue Kilmarnock's impressive form.

Derek Riordan's magnificent long-range strike brought Hibs back into the game early in the second half but Edwin de Graaf wasted their best opportunity to level and their chances were further diminished when Liam Miller was sent off following some sustained indecision from referee Craig Thomson.
