Do You Remember...

This section of the site is here to take you back and help you remember a few of the 'weel kent' faces from Killie through the ages. Whether a hero or a haddie and from the Director's Box down to the dugout, we have a good selection below. Click on the photo of the individual to see further information on them, some are interviews and some are just snippets put together over the years. If you have anything to add or anyone in particular you'd liked featured in this section then please let us know.

  Allen, Hugh - Hugh took over from Walter McRae as first team trainer in 1968, and kept the job all the way into the new millennium. Represented Killie as the Scotland physio for FIVE different World Cups. A great servant to the club, and has since been awarded the MBE by her majesty the Queen.
  Armstrong, Kenny - Kenny played over 100 games for Killie and was a standout during 82-83 campaign, when Killie were relegated with only 3 wins in 36 outings. Southampton then bought him for a mere £40K.Kenny then played 26 matches in their best ever season where they finished 2nd to Liverpool. Retired from the game at only 27 after a serious knee injury.
  Bagan, David -  Bagan was a member of our 1997 Scottish Cup Kilmarnock glory. Back in May 1997, the red headed winger helped parade the trophy in an open-topped bus through crowded streets in the Ayrshire town. (1996-97 Cup Win). That triumph was the icing on the cake of his glorious debut season in the SPL...
  Beattie, Frank - The name Francis Whitfield Beattie is revered by supporters of KFC Frank was an inspirational player who could turn a match through his own endeavours. He was skilful, uncompromising in the tackle and strong in the air. Mention of his name evokes memories of a golden era in the history of Kilmarnock FC...
  Black, Tom - Tom Black spent five years at Rugby Park, helping the team gain promotion to the Premier League. Many fans were annoyed with the way the club dismissed Tom but from his comments below, he took it all in his stride.
Interviewed by Donny Muir for the KTS magazine...
  Bourke, John - John Bourke is a man who you would be hard pushed to hear anyone be negative about, he is admired and respected by fans across the broad spectrum of Scottish football. That alone is no mean feat, and to top it off, he makes a very fine cup of tea.
Interviewed by Donny Muir for the KTS magazine...

  Boyd, Kris - Kris was Transferred to: Glasgow Rangers in Jan of 2006 for an estimated £400K. Kris left the club as Killie's all time SPL goalscorer with 64 finishes. In "Boomer's" Last Game for Killie on Dec 17th 2005, at Falkirk he scored the winning goal for Killie with the last kick of the ball. (& his Killie career!)
He certainly left on a high....
  Brown, Jimmy - Jimmy joined Killie from Hearts in Aug of 1953, and was sold to St Mirren in Nov 1960 for cash plus Campbell Forsyth coming to Rugby Park. Jimmy helped Killie to 3 Cup Finals, and promotion during his brilliant 8 year spell at Rugby Park.

Jimmy sadly passed away in Nov 2008.
  Brown, Tom - Broono was signed by then Killie manager Tommy Burns from the Junior ranks and did not look out of place in the SPL. His no-nonsense approach and never say die attitude made him a fans' favourite and of course he will always be remember for that Peter Grant incident.
Interviewed by Donny Muir for the KTS magazine...
  Bujis, Danny - The 30-year-old, was at Rugby Park for a season, (2011-12) left to sign a one-year contract with the club in the Second Division back in his Dutch homeland.  Celebrated like a true "Killie Boy" in the  2012 League Cup Semi win over A*r., and started the Final against Celtic en route to picking up a winners medal.
  Burke, Alex - Alex Burke will be remembered by Kilmarnock fans for adding left-wing swagger to the team that lifted the Scottish Cup in 1997, and who subsequently enjoyed European forays to the likes of Nice and Kaiserslautern. He was the teenage Scot who seemed to embody everything that had deserted the indigenous player...
  Burns, Tommy - Tommy Burns was appointed manager in April 1992 but he was originally signed by Jim Fleeting who pulled a masterstroke by signing him while Killie were still in the Second Division. Tommy proved to be a brilliant servant for the club, playing a major role in our revival. He continued to play and brought former...
  Canero, Peter - Pedro was only keen to move on with a transfer that would help Killie out (i.e. no pre-contract situations with other club's (Celtic was reported to be a non-starter) where Peter would leave Rugby Park for nothing!)  Peter has since been selected to the full Scotland side since his Jan 2004 move to  Leicester City...
  Clark, Jim - Coming soon!
  Clarke, Paul - "In 1986, approaching my 30th birthday, I realised that life at Rugby Park had become frustrating for me personally, as the club was really struggling and showing no apparent signs of improving. Although my last season at the club was one of my best, I knew deep down that my football career was coming to an end. "
Interviewed by Donny Muir for the KTS magazine...
  Cockburn, Jim - Nicknamed "Coby", Jim helped the club to gain promotion to the old Premier Division, in season 1981-82, making 20 starts, and was used as a sub once also! His only Killie goal was against Morton at Rugby Park Nov 16th 1985, which helped Killie win 3-0. Always gave 100%, and played much taller than his 5'6" size!
  Cocard, Christophe - Christophe Cocard was a 31 year old former French internationalist when he was signed on a Bosman in Sept of 1999 from Lyon. He broke his nose in his first training session and his debut was delayed 4 weeks! He was reported to be Killie's highest ever wage earner at over six grand a week...
  Cook, Jim - Part of the Willie Fernie promotion winning team in 73-74, that scored 96 league goals, that Jim must have supplied 25 of the serves into the box that Killie's Fleming or Morrison converted. From 68-71 played on the left wing opposite Tommy McLean, giving Killie one of the most attractive attacking formations in Scotland.
  Dargo, Craig - Brought in by Bobby Williamson during the close season of 2000 but due to his age we had to fork out a reputed £100,000 in compensation because he was under 23. His Killie career was been hampered by injuries but he will always be remembered for his Hampden wonder goal, in the 2000-01 CIS Semi Vs the Buddies. Craig was freed in May of 2005.
  Dayton, James - Joined Oldham Athletic on a two-year contract after rejecting a three-year deal at Kilmarnock, in May 2013.The 24-year-old midfielder, who began his career as a trainee at Crystal Palace, played alongside Latics boss Lee Johnson at Rugby Park.
  Dickson, Billy - Billy took quite some time to break into the Killie side. Was the best right back in Scotland from 1969-71. A member of the 64-65 league winning squad. Had an alarming loss of form during the 72-73 season, in which Killie were relegated and subsequently went part-time. Lost his spot due to the emergence of Stuart McLean & Alan Robertson both of whom went onto serve Killie for 10 + years
    DiGiacomo, Paul - Coming soon!
  Dindeleux, Freddie - Freddie played over 200 games for Killie, and was the longest playing Bosman transfer playing Scotland..."It was a gamble for me coming here, especially with a wife and child, but it was a gamble for Kilmarnock to sign a French centre-half. Thankfully, it went well. I was enjoying myself and the people at Kilmarnock  It just became my life".
  Durrant, Iain - To this day you will find many an argument over who Killie's "best player" was in the 90's! The majority of the fans are divided over Tommy Burns or Ian Durrant. A cultured right foot, and the vision to be a true midfield maestro, Durrant was brought in by Bobby Williamson in 1998 after Rangers title string was broken...


Eremenko, Alexi - Signed on a season-long loan from Ukraine club Metalist Kharkiv, by boss Mixu. The 27-year-old Finnish international was an attacking midfielder. Helped the club to a 5th place SPL finish in his only season of 2010-11.  Made shortlist of 4, for SPL player of the Year.

His position was covered most ably by Bobby Ferguson
  Fulton, Stevie - Stevie Fulton was signed June of 2002, on a free transfer from Hearts by his former boss Jim Jefferies. He was reported to have weight provisions written into his playing contract. His first full season was 2002-03 where he captained Killie to their best SPL season ever, and a 4th place finish. He was subsequently voted by many...

  Gibson, Ian - Coming soon!

  Gordon, Ben - Chelsea reserve team defender Ben Gordon who was on a short-term loan deal from Aug 10- Jan 11. Gordon, was Mixu's second signing when he took over at Rugby Park in the summer of 2010.  Ben was a huge success.
  Harkins, Gary - The 28-year-old midfielder had fallen out of favour at Rugby Park with Killie manager Kenny Shiels. Danny Racchi said...."Gary is one of the most comfortable players on the ball I've ever seen. You wouldn't think that the first time you see him though, he looks like a drunk.."
  Hay, Garry - A member of our 2012 Scottish League Cup Kilmarnock side. Signed in 1995, would serve Killie for 18 years!  Left club after sacking of Shiels in June 2013, where no coaching or playing role was offered. "Hooky" was certainly Killie through & through!
  Heffernan, Paul - Another member of our 2012 Scottish League Cup Kilmarnock side. Signed in 2011, by manager Shiels, and was sold by Allan Johnston in Aug 2013 to Hibs. The N Irishman was a likable striker with a keen eye for goal.

Last Match - March 18th 2001 against Celtic in the CIS Cup Final.
  Hunter, Ally - Played 3 times in goal for Scotland, while representing Killie. Was signed by manager Walter McRae from Johnston Burgh, Ally had 76 games between 1970 & 1973. Was sold to Celtic, knowing we had Jim Stewart waiting in the wings.

  Johnson, Tommy - Former Killie boss Bobby Williamson, brought Tommy Johnson to Rugby Park on a short-term loan at the end of Dec 2001. He became an immediate fans favourite, however, looking for one last decent contract, before he was to hang his boots up, and the lack of SPL TV Money, Killie could not retain him...

Seven years later, Andy was transferred to Manchester City for £11,000. Andy never really settled in Manchester, so after two years, he signed for Killie in December 1959, for a club record...
  Kerr, Dylan - Were Dylan Kerr to choose to shoot from the lip at Kilmarnock, he has not knowing t his sentiments would be misinterpreted as sour grapes. Let go at the end of last season Kerr has said nothing and simply get on with the business of finding another club. "I am not going to start a slanging match"...
  King, Andy - Andy played from Killie between 1961 & 1972, and was signed from Saxone Ams, making 224 appearances (scoring 5 goals).

  Lekovic, Dragoje - "It is great to be back in (Dec 19th 2000) Scotland," Lekovic told the press. "We are back in our old home and I have been back to watch Kilmarnock and see my old friends. I watched the League Cup match against Hibernian and, since then, I have been training with Henry Smith at A*r and then Tom Hendrie at St Mirren."...
  MacDonald, Malky - When Raymond Montgomerie hoisted the Scottish Cup aloft at a sun drenched, emotion soaked Ibrox on 24th May 1997, there was one man watching from the stands who perhaps felt that after 40 years justice had been done. Malcolm MacDonald...Interviewed by Donny Muir for the KTS magazine...
  Mackinnon, David - Davie Mackinnon was one of these players you hated when he was on the opposing side, only because you wanted him playing for your team.

  MacPherson, Angus - During Gus MacPherson's playing days he worked for six top managers in 18 seasons as a professional. And every one has had a different side to his character - some mad, some bad. Here, Gus gives his verdict on his gaffers...Interviewed for an unknown publication, so if anyone can help out please do...
  Mahood, Alan - Alan Mahood has revealed he wants the chance to say goodbye to the Kilmarnock fans after six glorious years at Rugby Park.

Today works with Scottish National team youth and schoolboy setup.
  Maxwell, George - George made over 350 appearances for Killie between1969 & 1981. Known also for rocket right foot shots that were the hardest in Scotland at the time!. As a part time player George was also a PE teacher, and had Gordon "Casper" Smith as both a pupil and a team-mate.
  McCluskey, George - 'Toby' as George was nicknamed, was one of the most skilful players in Scotland over the last few decades. Never the quickest player but he made up for a lack of pace with great positional sense and an abundance of skills. George was signed in Season 1992-93 and played his part in Killie being promoted to...
  McCoist, Alistair - The 2000-01 season was Ally McCoist's final season so here is a scrap book of how Scottish football's Peter Pan exited stage right!

  McCulloch, Alan - Alan McCulloch made his debut for Killie against the mighty Brechin in December '63 and went on to play an amazing 489 times for the club. It has been argued that if he had played for a 'bigger' club then no doubt he would have added to his one under 21 cap... Interviewed by Donny Muir for the KTS magazine...
  McCulloch, Iain - Iain was a never say die fan-fav, not un-like Gary Holt! Sold to Notts Co in Mar 1978 for £80,000. Played through 1986 before retiring through injury. Nicknamed "cowboy" for his reckless all out style of play.
  McCutcheon, Gary - With a total of six starts and sixteen appearances as a substitute (scoring two goals in the process) since he signed in 1995. Gary never got a chance of a sustained run in the first team at Rugby Park. He's been off on loan on numerous occasions... Read his player profile...
  McDicken, Derek - Affectionately known as "Big D" . In 1980 Killie turned down a bid of £250,00 from West Ham, as it was considered an undervalued bid!. Scored the only goal for 1st Div Killie in knocking out  holders Celtic in a 4th round Scottish Cup replay at Rugby Park  on Mar 6th 1978. Retired from football after a serious double leg break in the 1987 Scottish Junior Cup Final, playing for Auchinleck Talbot.
  McGowne, Kevin - Imaginatively knick-named "Big Kev", McGowne was signed by Alex Totten in 1996 from St Johnstone.

The cup semi replay winner over the Arabs, and the opening goal in the away leg of the Shelbourne Cup Winners Cup match. What price do you think these 2 "Jimmy Mac" goals were worth to the club.?
  McLaughlan, Sandy - To follow

  McLaren, Andrew - Andy was signed by former manager Bobby Williamson in June of 2000 after being out of football for a period due to drink and drug related problems. His fight back to fitness was nothing short of dramatic and he made an immediate impact with Killie and especially the fans. His passionate displays made him a real...

  McLean, Stuart - Coming soon!
  McLean, Tommy - Tommy McLean was one of my boyhood idols, and it broke my heart when he was sold off to Rangers. Tommy will always be remembered as one Killie's 1964-65 Championship Winning Team. Tommy also featured as one our "Euro Hero's" the night we sank Eintracht 5-1 at Rugby Park. He was a right winger who picked up...
  McSwegan, Gary - Gary was signed by Jim Jefferies in July of 2002. In 2 full seasons Gary played in 63 games, scoring 17 goals. Will always be remembered for his exploits on  April 5th 2003 when he scored FOUR times against a Bobby Williamson led Hibs side at Rugby Park.
  McRae, Walter - "Wattie"  was manager between 1968-73, during a time when the club reverted to part-time football (and subsequent relegation). Had been a tough first team trainer for the 64-65 title team! Returned in the 90's as Club Sec, and earned an OBE for all of his service!
  Merdy, Davide - Davide played less than one full game for Killie in the UEFA Cup at Glenavon in August of 2001. He will go down in Killie folklore as somewhat of a legend (in his own lunchtime) or should that be enigma, being the ONLY Killie player to have played 100% of his first-team matches in Europe...
  Middlemas, James - Joined Killie at the ripe old age of 29, after appearing for Petershill Juniors in the 1949 junior cup final. Helped Killie reach the 1953 League Cup Final as a Division "B" team. Went on to captain Killie during their 1953-54 promotion winning season.
  Millar, Blair - "The current set up is a far cry from the days when I was playing, it's simply amazing how the club has progressed in the last few years. A great deal of credit must go to Bobby Fleeting for his vision and to Jim Moffat for putting his hand into his pocket so many times to keep the club going." Interviewed by Donny Muir for the KTS magazine...
  Mitchell, Alistair - Ally Mitchell arrived in 1991 from East Fife for the princely sum of £100,000 which, ten years and over 400 appearances later seems to be a bit of a bargain! Always versatile, Ally played in nearly every position at some stage in his Killie career. A genuine Killie legend and the last of the 1997 Scottish Cup winners. "Bully" was released on Jan 17th 2003.
  Montgomerie, Raymond - Monty was part of the team who found glory and brought Kilmarnock back into the top flight in the early nineties. In the years that closely followed Monty played an integral role in staving off several nervous relegation fights and helped the club find consolidation as one of Scotland's leading clubs. Captained Killie in 97 to a Scottish Cup victory.
  Morrison, Eddie - Signed from Port Glasgow to Killie in Season '66-'67. Played at Rugby Park for nine seasons until Manager Willie Fernie released him. Left the club as modern day goal scoring leader with 149 of them. Ian Fallis took his place. Returned to Killie as manager in 1985. Largely ineffective as a manager he was fired in 1989 . A cult hero with the fans .."O Eddie Eddie"... will live on for ever! I
  Murray, Eric - Eric served Killie from 1961 to 1968, and played as a right half, having been converted by Willie Waddell from a centre forward. Yet another master stroke en route to winning the 1964-65 Scottish League Championship. Eric was Ayrshire born & bred hailing from Symington originally.
    Murray, Grant - Murray, began his Killie career in 2006 and scored two goals in 55 starts for the first team. He’d previously played for Hearts, St Johnstone and Partick Thistle.  Manager Jefferries said of "Bert"..."Murray was a  terrific professional".
    Murray, Stephen - Coming soon!
  Naismith, Steven - Broke into Kilie's starting XI, at the age of 17. A proven goal scorer, at every level, picked up the nick-name of "Kid Goals". Hailing from Stewarton Naisy was also a keen Glasgow Rangers fan, and when they came sniffing for him during the summer of 2007, he was "off" for a cool £2 Mill. Was a full Scotland "cap" while at Killie!
The Admiral!   Nelson, Michael - Played for just 12 months (Jan 2012-Jan 2013). Debut against A*r in the League Cup Semi (& went on to win a winners medal!). English born was nicknamed "the Admiral", and left for Bradford City  left/sold for fifty thousand pounds.
  Nevin, Pat - Played just one season in 97-98 scoring 6 goals. Finished his career at Murderwell.

Since retiring as a player, Nevin has worked as a chief executive of Motherwell and as a football writer and broadcaster. Always has has good things to say about the Killie.
  Nish, Colin - Sold to Hibs on Jan 30th 2008, after rejecting the club's best offer, having signed a pre-contract for season 2008-09 with the capital club. The six foot +, lanky forward was certainly not a fans fav initially, but won many of the fans over, with his goals, and overall effort to the cause. Scored from the spot in his last match for Killie Vs Airdrie Utd, in the cup.
  Perez, Borja - Played one season at Killie under Kenny Shiels. Magic must not have fancied him, as he was punted to Tenerife in his native land, only a couple of weeks into the 2013-14 season.
  Provan, Davie - In season 1977-78 As a first division Killie claimed the premier league scalp of holders Celtic, in the Scottish Cup. It was Killie's wee winger Davie Provan gave the Celtic backline a roasting, and it was no surprise that Celtic bought Provan the following season, for a then record of £120,000 pounds between Scottish clubs.This is the first time a club from a lower division had knocked out the cup holders !!
  Queen, Gerry - Killie bought Gerry in 1965 from St Mirren for £4,000 plus Ronnie Hamilton. 124 outings and 41 goals later Gerry departed Killie to head on down south to join Crystal Palace for a fee of £35,000, in June of 1969. Gerry did play (and scored Killie's only goal) in the club's 1969 Centenary match Vs Eintracht.
  Quitongo, Jose - Jim Jefferies once had him on his books while at Hearts, and with the new transfer window system coming in during 2002-03 season , JJ offered him a six month contract as cover. Sadly Jose never really broke through, despite all his trickery & skill!
  Reilly, Mark - "Mavis" was another member of our 1997 Scottish Cup Kilmarnock glory side. Joined from Motherwell was the engine room for Tommy Burns promotion winning side of 1992-93.Left the club to join Burns for a brief period in 1998 at Reading, but rejoined Killie within a year.

John sadly passed away in Dec of 2005. It is/was his family's wishes to have John's ashes scattered at Rugby Park, the following summer of 2006.
Thanks to Sherry his daughter for the rare 50's images.
  Shaw, Gary - Who is the only former Killie player to have a European Cup Winners Medal? Answer: Gary Shaw. He was a member of the 1981-82 Aston Villa side that defeated Bayern Munich 1-0 to lift the European Cup. Made a whopping 2 starts for Killie in Aug of 1990. Left quickly after finding life on Killie's bench not to his liking!
  Sheridan, Cillian - Signed by Kenny Shiels in Sept 2012 , and sold June 2013 to Apoel, Champions of Cyprus. Always will be remembered for the first goal at Celtic park in Oct 2012, that broke our 57 year "hoodo" there!
  Shiels, Dean - Signed by father Kenny on Loan from Doncaster . Helped Kilmarnock win the Scottish Communities League Cup and made the four-man short-list for Scotland's player of the year during is only season of 2011-12.
  Silva, David - Signed by Mixu, in 2010 and played 2 seasons for Killie. Not named in the 2012 League Cup Final team, David Mendes Da Silva certainly did his bit featuring in the Semi win (over A*r) .Left Killie after his release and returned to his Portuguese homeland to sign a two-year contract with Primeira Liga club Olhanense.
  Skilling, Mark - Coming Soon!
  Skora, Eric - Eric was on loan from Preston NE from Jan -May 2004. When he left he said...."I'm full of confidence and I'll go back a better player, Maybe not in skill but in confidence. I believe Jim Jefferies and his staff have made me a better player. I think I've done the job so I want to thank Kilmarnock for everything that they've done for me."
  Smith, Andy - Was originally signed on loan from Dunfermline in Dec 1999, Well a £100,00 grand later he was ours. It was reported his Pars wages were honoured and he was making more than injured Paul Wright at the time. He is then "freed" within a year, and signed-on with Raith, with Killie again reported "covering" a portion of his wages !!
  Smith, Gordon - Played in the 73/74 & 75/76 promotion winning sides, before being sold to Rangers  in 1978. Should have clinched the FA Cup for Brighton in 1983  (Vs Man U) at Wembley. In the immortal words of BBC commentator David Coleman.... "and Smith must score!". Today, Gordon is an active player agent, and BBC football pundit. Doesn't seem to fondly look back on his Rugby Park playing days.

  Sneddon, Davie - Another Killie icon! Davie scored one of the goals that helped bring the 1964-65 title to Kilmarnock. Davie was the first team trainer from 1972-77, and manager from 1977-81. Davie can still be seen around Rugby Park today, as one of the clubs  match day hospitality employees. Killie through & through having been born in Kilwinning.
   Stark, Billy - Coming soon!
  Stewart, Jim - Took Ally Hunter's job after he was sold to Celtic. Yet another in the great line of Killie keepers! Jim himself went on to represent his country while at Kilmarnock, including the 1974 World Cup in Germany. Was sold to Middlesboro in 1979. Alan McCulloch would then be next between the sticks for the next decade. His son Colin also made 1 appearance for Killie.
  Toner, William - One of the "True Greats" to have played for Kilmarnock Football Club. Converted to a centre half, by Malky McDonald, Willie picked up 2 full Scottish caps in 1959. Cost £2,000 from Sheffield Utd in 1954, Willie played for Killie for 9 years through 1963. In 1960-61 was voted Scotland's player of the year ! Also unfortunately picked up 3 different cup runners up medals while at Killie.
  Van Tornhout, Dieter -  Contributed one of Killie's most famous goals - the winner against Celtic in the 2012 Scottish Communities League Cup final. "I was very glad to score such an important goal in the League Cup final.  I have had a wonderful time at Killie and will never forget my few months in Ayrshire"  Left the club suddenly due to his ailing fathers health in Belgium in June 2012.
  Vareille, Jerome - Jerome  was the first of a quartet of French players - including Christophe Cocard, Freddie Dindeleux and Mickael Pizzo - to come to Kilmarnock. between 1998 & 2000. Hurt at Ibrox in the last game of 1998, was never the same player after he returned. Was Freddie's "best man" in Dindeleux 's wedding!
  Watters, William - I'll let baz write this one! (However ... I know the word.... "GOD".... has a good chance of getting used!..... Allan)
  Williamson, Robert - Take a look back at what Bobby Williamson achieved in his 11 years and 4 months at Rugby Park.....both as a player and a manager. (One Scottish Cup Win, One CIS Cup Runners Up, SPL 4th twice, SPL Fair Play Winners Once. Relegation avoided twice, Europe 4 times in 6 years.)
BW today is manager of Plymouth Argyle.
  Woodison, David -  Due to the clubs financial plight (in May of 2003) the squad’s wage bill was being reduced and I was given the chance to leave despite the year remaining on my contract. Quite simply, I hadn’t been enjoying it for the last two months so I agreed to discuss a settlement. An agreement was quickly reached a few days later and my full time football career was over. Retirement!
  Wright, Paul - Nicknamed "Bunion" Paul joined Kilmarnock in March of 1995 from St Johnstone, for a club record  £300K. He will always be fondly remembered by the Killie faithful for "THAT" goal.... You know the one that brought the Scottish Cup to Kilmarnock on May 24th 1997
