Killie could yet be our Leicester


Huge congratula­tions to my old club Kilmarnock on going top of the Premiershi­p with their win over Livingston in midweek. Back at the start of the season, there was speculatio­n that Hearts could be our Leicester City this year.

I never thought that was a fair comparison. One of our very biggest clubs, they are more a Liverpool or an Everton.

Killie, though, would fit the bill. Operating on a budget that is tiny compared to their rivals, they are performing miracles under the inspired leadership of Steve Clarke this season, and completely deserve all the praise.

And, while I can’t say I believe they will win the title this season, it was exactly the same story when we were talking about Leicester’s chances this time three years ago.
