Lee McCulloch waiting for call over Kilmarnock job

The interim boss is still in the dark about his long-term future at Rugby Park.

Lee McCulloch is preparing Kilmarnock for their last game of the Premiership season but says he is no clearer on whether or not he will be in charge next season.

McCulloch stepped up as interim manager following Lee Clark's departure in February and has since steered the club to safety despite relegation fears.

STV understands the board have discussed McCulloch this week but he says he has not had any talks about taking the job on a permanent basis.

"I've not heard one thing, so as far as I'm aware I'll take the team on Saturday and then see how it goes," he said.

"I've always said from day one I'd love to sit down with the board and talk.

"I don't know (if I'll hear from the board soon). Saturday is the last day of the season, tomorrow is the last training day, so I'll just wait and see if my phone rings."

Kilmarnock could finish in seventh place in the league if they beat Ross County on Saturday and McCulloch reflected on a season where the club had a high turnover of players and he noted how positive an outcome that would be.

"We got beat off of Albion Rovers in the League Cup back in August, so there was a concern," he said. 

"When you are bringing that many bodies together it always takes time to gel.

"But right now the lads are playing for each other as a unit. The togetherness in the dressing room is brilliant."
