Jefferies: My best Kilmarnock squad

Kilmarnock boss Jim Jefferies believes the depth of his current squad is the best he has ever had in the six years he has been in charge at Rugby Park.

Kilmarnock boss Jim Jefferies believes the depth of his current squad is the best he has ever had in the six years he has been in charge at Rugby Park.

Killie sit in third place in the SPL and Jefferies says he will need to adopt a rotation policy if the club are to maintain their current form.

“This is the best squad I have had in terms of strength of depth,” Jefferies told the Scottish Sun.

“I’ve not had it as good since I’ve been here. In the next few weeks, if you look at our tough run of games, we can give some players a break.

“We learned our lesson after the Celtic game and a few days later a high tempo match with Aberdeen, before we struggled at Inverness. I should have freshened it up for Inverness.

“There’s competition for places which I never had last year. It’s in every area – so that gives me options to change things.”
