Kilmarnock keen to secure services of manager Shiels

Kilmarnock chairman Michael Johnston has confirmed the club has opened talks with manager Kenny Shiels regarding his contract.

The 55-year old is currently contracted until this summer but Johnston is keen to secure him for at least the following campaign after he lead the club to the League Cup triumph for the first time in their history on the weekend.

"I spoke to Kenny a few weeks ago about extending his contract until next season at least," Johnston told STV.

"Kenny said he would speak to (assistant manager) Jimmy Nicholl about that so we had open discussions on that.

"I'm delighted that Kenny has gained this well-deserved success.

"It's a fantastic achievement for Kilmarnock Football Club and now we've got our own 'Treble'. We've won the League, the League Cup and the Scottish Cup."
