St Mirren [ edit ]
On 14 July 2011, Tesselaar signed for
Scottish Premier League club St. Mirren on a one-year deal. He made his debut against [1 ] Dunfermline at East End Park on 25 July. On 20 August, he assisted both St. Mirren goals for [2 ] Steven Thomson who scored both goals in a 2-1 victory at Easter Road against Hibernian. Tesselaar played regularly during the 2011–12 Scottish Premier League season, but their good performance led manager Danny Lennon offered both Tesselaar and Nigel Hasselbaink a improved contract, only to be rejected the offer of a new contract at St. Mirren despite captain [3 ] Jim Goodwin pleaded the duo to sign a new contract.

Kilmarnock [ edit ]
Tesselaar signed for
Kilmarnock in June 2012. On his move, Manager [5 ] Kenny Shiels told STV: "We're really happy to get him on board because we've lost Ben Gordon so now we've got competition between Rory McKeown and Jeroen." [6 ]
