Kevin Kyle is happy to pen a new deal at Kilmarnock, despite being disciplined by the club.

The Scotland international striker was fined earlier this week for openly criticising Killie chairman Michael Johnston.

Killie had been keen to talk terms with the 28-year-old before the events of the last week unfolded and, despite being asked to be stripped of the club captaincy, Kyle hopes that is still the case.

"At the minute, I would rather stay at Killie and do what I did last season," he said.

"If they offer me a new contract and I'm happy with it, I'll stay. But if things don't work out, I'll just see what happens.

"The past month or so has been a bit of a disaster and it's shown in my performances, but it's all sorted with the chairman now.

"I wanted to get back on the pitch and show the manager I deserve to be in the team. I asked him to take the captaincy off me, and he did.

"We've all just to get our sleeves rolled up and get things sorted out and get three points on a regular basis. If not, we need to make sure we don't lose any games."
