Rory’s Killie spirit call ahead of Buddies clash

Rory McKenzie hopes Killie can show their battling qualities when we take on St Mirren in Paisley.

As the club continues the search for a new manager, Rory says he and all the players will have to show the hunger and desire to fight for every ball to arrest a run of four successive defeats.

He said: “We were low when Alex was sacked as you would be after the St Johnstone game because it is not easy to lose a game like that and then lose the manager.

“Football moves quickly and we’ve got two massive games against St Mirren and Motherwell. I’ve got a fighting spirit and I hope everyone else down there [in the dressing room] has.

“We’ve got over the initial low and now we’re looking forward.”
