Alex Dyer has hailed weekend hero Greg Kiltie after the playmaker’s inspiring performance handed Kilmarnock a much-needed home win.

Killie won at Rugby Park for the first time since November largely thanks to the homegrown talent, two goals of his sealing a 2-0 success over Hamilton Accies, taking Dyer’s men undefeated in three matches.

Dyer was thrilled with Kiltie: “Kiltie was excellent, he set the tone all afternoon, he worked hard and scored two good goals. All-round performance, he was brilliant and that triggered everyone else off.

“They all worked extremely hard, showed good quality, passed the ball extremely well and to be fair Hamilton couldn’t live with us. Greg has been good all season for us. He had a bad injury and he was out for ages.


“He started the season well. I stepped him out the side a couple of times and he has come back in and he looks a good player for us. He’s a Killie boy, he is one of their own and it is good to see. So long may that continue.”

Dyer says that even if there is not much transfer business at Rugby Park this month, he is happy with his current squad: “We have a limited budget but, if there’s something I need, I know the board will find the pennies.

“At the moment I work with what I’ve got because what I have got is good enough. Together we are alright.”
