Steven Kean is favourite for Kilmarnock job

Steven Kean is favourite for Kilmarnock job

Kilmarnock have targeted Rovers coach Steve Kean as the man to fill the vacated managerial spot at Rugby Park.

Kean has been a hit and earned rave reviews under Rovers boss Sam Allardyce - even to the point where John Williams has dug his heels in and refused to let Kean go.

Killie are keen to fill the spot left empty by Colin Calderwood but might have to look elsewhere if Rovers current stance stays hardened.

The Chairman spoke to the Daily Record and said - 'We're offering Stevie the opportunity to develop his coaching skills in a top national league,'

'Maybe Blackburn might want him back one day in a bigger role. The matter isn't clear cut and negotiations are at a delicate stage.

'The Rovers chairman's told me Stevie's not leaving them. My understanding is both parties are going to have further talks.

'We believe we have terms and conditions that would be agreeable to Stevie but they may see compensation as a point of principle.'

Reports this morning suggest we are holding onto him. Can only be a good thing IMO.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
