Calderwood tells Kilmarnock players to sort it!

Kilmarnock boss Jimmy Calderwood has no sympathy for any of his players who are struggling to deal with the stress of a relegation battle. Killie have lost six matches in a row, one a Scottish Cup defeat by Celtic, to leave them second bottom of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League ahead of Sunday's visit of Aberdeen.

But he has warned his players that only they can steer themselves away from relegation trouble.

"It's their own stupid fault," Calderwood said. "They are the ones that have got to get it done.

"I'm not running away from responsibility myself, but players can get it sorted out.

"Nobody is too good to go down. We are a good team when we play and stick to basics, that's what got us the success in the beginning and we've got to get back to it.

"The victory is vital to get away from the bottom of the league."
