Steve Clarke has reaffirmed his commitment to Kilmarnock, following Brendan Rodgers’ departure from Celtic.

Rodgers has quit Celtic for Leicester City, leaving a vacancy at the Scottish champions. Despite this, Clarke has disclosed that he is firmly committed to the Rugby Park club.

He told the Daily Record: “I am not interested in leaving Kilmarnock for another Scottish club. I have said that before and that’s still the case.”

Clarke did admit however, that he will return to English football in the future.

“I am 100 per cent sure that I will be going back to England in the future, that’s where my life is. But for now my focus is on Kilmarnock, and concentrating on securing a top-six finish.”

Killie fans will be delighted with Clarke committing his future to the team. He has made the Rugby Park side one of the top teams in the Scottish Premiership, following years of relegation battles.

The team are in a poor run of form at the moment, having gone seven games without a win. But that shouldn’t take away from the excellent job that Clarke has done for the last two seasons.

With Clarke putting the speculation to bed, he can now concentrate on helping Killie getting into Europe, beginning on Wednesday night against Motherwell at Rugby Park.
