Kyle Joseph George Lafferty (born 16 September 1987) is a Northern Irish professional footballer who plays as a forward for Scottish Premiership club Hearts and the Northern Ireland national team.

Lafferty began his professional career with English side Burnley, where he made 89 appearances. He signed for Rangers in 2008 for £3.25 million, and won three Scottish Premier League titles, the Scottish Cup once and the Scottish League Cup twice with the club. In 2012 Lafferty chose not to transfer over to the new company which owns and runs Rangers, moving to Switzerland's FC Sion. He signed for Serie B club Palermo in 2013 and led them to promotion as champions in his only season before joining Norwich. He spent time on loan with Turkish club Çaykur Rizespor and back in England with Birmingham City.

He made his first international appearance for Northern Ireland in 2006 and has more than 50 caps. With 20 goals he is the team's second highest scorer of all time, behind former strike partner David Healy on 36.
