Mixu back in the mix at Kilmarnock

As expected former Dundee United striker Mixu Paatelainen has been appointed as the new manager of Kilmarnock on a two-year deal with an option of a third.

The ex-Finland international has been absent from the game since losing his last job at Hibernian just over a year ago.

"I was desperate to get back and I look forward to being at Kilmarnock," he told BBC Sport. "I missed the training ground and the adrenaline. There is scope to improve the squad. Not too much, just a little bit."

Kilmarnock are currently crippled by debts of in the region of 11m, which will leave their new manager with precious few resources in terms of strengthening his team.

"I hope to bring in a couple of players," he added. "I haven't spoken to any of the players and I don't intend to until 5 July.

"I know it's a big task and difficult. The SPL is very tight but I believe with hard work you can create a little luck."
