Manager Career Highlights: A quiet, unassuming type of manager, Davie took the club back to the Premier League, at the end of the 1978-79 season.

Davie had been r
eserve team trainer 1972-77.

One of his greatest triumphs was winning, against all odds, the Tennent's Caledonian Cup pre-season tournament at Ibrox, fighting back from two goals down with minutes left and eventually winning on penalties. The following season he helped to keep Killie "up" as we finished 8th in 1979-80, which was a remarkable feat for a part-time outfit. Remember these were the hay-days for teams such as Dundee Utd & Aberdeen.

Davie left the club in January 1981, (Killie were relegated in 1980-81 winning only 5 of 36 matches.) and was later manager of Stranraer for a good number of years, before returning to Rugby Park where he now works on match days in the club's hospitality suite.

Davie joins in on the 40 year anniversary of the
64-65 Championship - Here
