Kilmarnock keeper Combe happy to give up coaching job

Kilmarnock goalkeeper Alan Combe is happy to have been relieved of his coaching duties.

Former Rangers coach Billy Thomson has arrived to oversee the goalies at the club and the appointment has been warmly welcomed.

Combe said: "It's good when someone comes in with new ideas, it's refreshing and it gives you alift. It's good as we can have a chat and he can point out things I've done well or what I could have done better, rather than have one of the young keepers come in and slag me off on a Monday morning after seeing me on TV.

"Billy's been in for a week and a half now and it's been good. We've got five keepers at the club and when I look back my own training did diminish a little because I was looking after the rest of the boys. It certainly wasn't through any fault of my own, I was trying as much as I could but I had too much to do with the coaching.

"I think the gaffer realised I wasn't doing as much work on my own game as I should have been doing because the coaching. So they've brought in Billy for a couple of days a week and it's taken a bit of the work load off myself.
