Oct 14th 2017: Killie announce the appointment of Steve Clarke as their new manager. Clarke, who has previously filled high-profile coaching roles at Chelsea, Newcastle and Liverpool, has been out of work since leaving Aston Villa 12 months ago. He was taken there by Roberto Di Matteo but moved on when Steve Bruce was brought in to replace him. Clarke, a former Scotland international, brings a wealth of experience to the Killie dugout as they look to get off the bottom of the Premiership table.
Steve Clarke... “I’m delighted to be back in football and I’m especially delighted to be named Kilmarnock manager. In my discussions with the board we spoke about stability and while we need to fix the current situation, I’m looking to provide that stability to this great club. I’m looking forward to working with the board, staff, players and supporters to ensure future success at the club.”
