Killie have endured a difficult campaign so far and sit third bottom of the Scottish Premiership.

The defence has been a particular concern for Johnston - they have conceded 28 goals so far - and he already has a centre-half on trial ahead of the transfer window opening.

Johnston said: "You are always looking. We had someone in on trial today and we will continue to do that throughout January and assess the squad then.

"We've got a foreign boy in just now. He has been in for a couple of days and

we had someone in last week as well.

"There will be a few people coming and going over the next month because you've got to make sure you bring the right people in.

"We are looking to strengthen a few positions. We are in the position we're in in the league for a reason and we've got to improve.

"We've definitely got good players here and if we start putting a run of results together we can quickly work our way up the table."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
