A first start since March for Paul Heffernan, who celebrated his return with two goals, and a start for Gary Harkins who grabbed the third, helped ease the home side to a comfortable win in the end.

"In the first half we had a good couple of chances through Rocco Quinn and Steven Ross - possibly the better chances of the half and didn't take them," Adams said.

"I always felt that the team that scored the first goal would go on and win the game and that's what Kilmarnock did."

Adams took a swipe as Kilmarnock's second-half tactics as he added: "I wasn't too disappointed with the team as we did exceptionally well to compete with them in the first half.

"We don't have as good a side as them, they spend a lot on their players. But we managed to stop them playing and made them a long-ball team in the second half.

"After the goal they started passing again and they grew in confidence."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
