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 reserve team trainer 1972-77.
One of his greatest triumphs was winning, against
all odds, the
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 &
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
