Kenny Shiels: Kilmarnock have still to make a decision on manager's future

Media reports on Sunday morning claimed Shiels had been dismissed by Killie chairman Michael Johnstone on Saturday evening.

The Rugby Park team finished ninth in the Scottish Premier League last season, and Shiels was in trouble with the Scottish Football Association for accusations about a match official and comments directed towards Celtic Football Club.

"Today's reports are wrong," a Kilmarnock spokesman said. "We have not sacked Kenny.

"As was reported yesterday, Kenny's position is under review at present due to his failure to meet a contractual performance related target and potential breaches of contract relating to media comments and observance of Scottish FA Articles and Rules and SPL Articles and Rules.

"In successive seasons we have finished fifth, seventh and now ninth. Our home record last season was the worst for over 30 years.

"These factors, along with the well documented SFA disciplinary issues and other internal problems concerning Kenny's conduct have necessitated the review.

"The outcome will be announced next week."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
