Kilmarnock boss Shiels 'all over the place' after death of Jack Kelly

Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels has revealed he and the rest of the team have been hit hard by the death of Jack Kelly.

The father of midfielder Liam passed away after having a heart attack in the stands as Kille won the League Cup final 1-0 over Celtic yesterday and the incident has left the club 'despondent'.

"I am all over the place, I really am," he said prior to the confirmation of My Kelly's death.

"It happened right beside this dugout and I am only doing this press conference out of respect to you (the media) so I hope you appreciate that.

"I have went from so high an emotion to so low an emotion.

"We are not sure of the outcome but he is very seriously ill and that's a tough emotion after going up to one of the best moments of our lives.

"The dressing room is very despondent and I don't know why the man above sends down these messages to us.

"We are thinking more about Liam than our triumphalism."
