Angelo Alessio has praised Kilmarnock’s Liverpool loanee Liam Millar, although he is expecting more consistency from the forward.

Millar was inspirational off the bench for Killie as they drew 2-2 with Hibs at Easter Road. Goals from Christian Doidge and Jason Naismith had the home side on the road to victory.

A couple of good substitutions from Alessio though got Killie back in the game and Millar was perhaps the most impressive. His searing pace and dribbling had Hibs struggling at points.

Kilmarnock did manage to salvage a draw, with an Alex Bruce effort getting them back in the game before Dario Del Fabro sparked scenes in the away end.

Alessio is happy with his team and the Liverpool man, but he knows there is more to come from the Canadian: “In the last period he didn’t play regularly but I know he has good skills. He showed that.

“But I want more because he has quality to play well. He’s young and he can improve a lot.

“We needed to be strong on the pitch. Our football for us is sometimes ok and we play football very well. But we should work hard in every game, have good personality and fight. The second half was a good reaction.”
