Shiels still boss – Killie

KILMARNOCK have denied reports that boss Kenny Shiels has been sacked – but say his position will be resolved at a meeting this week.

Reports this morning suggested the Northern Irishman had been dismissed by Killie chairman Michael Johnstone.

But that is not the case and the 57-year-old is still in a job for now. His role as Rugby Park manager will however be re-examined after the team failed to finish outside of the Scottish Premier League's bottom three.

A four-match ban handed to Shiels following media comments will also be taken into consideration.

A club spokesman said: "Today's reports are wrong. We have not sacked Kenny. Kenny's position is under review due to his failure to meet a contractual performance-related target and potential breaches of contract relating to media comments and observance of Scottish FA Articles and Rules and SPL Articles and Rules."
