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."
