Everybody is well-aware of the superb job that Steve Clarke has done at Kilmarnock.

To get a team with his squad of players to joint second place in the league is remarkable.

Killie are only three points behind leaders Celtic, and level on points with Rangers, which shows that they are legitimate title contenders.

But the lack of transfer activity in January could well prove to be their downfall come the end of the season.

So far the Rugby Park side have signed only one player in January – Conor McAleny from Fleetwood, on loan.

To make matters worse, one of their key players, Jordan Jones, has agreed to join Rangers next season.

It will be interesting to see if Steven Gerrard makes a move to bring Jones in early before the transfer window closes.

In a way it’s not suprising Kilmarnock haven’t spent any money in the transfer window.

They are one of the smaller clubs in the league, which is another testament to how well Clarke has done.

You have to worry that the lack of numbers will eventually catch up with Kilmarnock.

They can’t keep playing the same players every week.

If only they had gambled and brought in a few more players, it could make a big difference to their seasons.

As it stands though, the players who have brought them to a new level will have to go to the well once more in the second-half of the season.
