Allan Johnston: Kilmarnock manager keen to strengthen squad

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."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
