Kilmarnock have reportedly interviewed Steven Pressley as they continue to search for a new manager, according to reports.

The report claims that the Rugby Park club interviewed the former Hearts legend on Thursday. The report also discloses that former Killie star Jim McIntyre is also under consideration for the role, and that former Premiership bosses Tommy Wright and Stephen Robinson have also applied for the job.

Not managed a club since 2019

However, it is the reported interest in Pressley which will come as intriguing to the Kilmarnock support. The former Celtic and Rangers defender has not managed a club since Carlisle United in 2019.

During his managerial career, he has also had spells in charge of Coventry City, Fleetwood and Pafos in Cyprus. However, he has been out of football for the last two years since the Carlisle United sacking.


Club legend also a consideration

Jim McIntyre would likely be a favourable appointment amongst the Killie support. He had a successful playing career at Rugby Park, winning the Scottish Cup in 1997.

He has also had an interesting managerial career. McIntyre has had spells in charge of Queen of the South, Ross County and Dundee.

His most successful time was with Ross County, who he led to League cup glory in 2016. As it stands though, neither of these men will be in charge for tomorrow’s game against St Mirren. Head of Football Operations James Fowler is set to be in charge, as he was for the midweek defeat to Celtic.

Therefore, the new man’s first game in charge could be against Motherwell on the 10th of February.
