McInnes on top six 'utopia', Europe, and recruitment

Kilmarnock manager Derek McInnes has been talking to the media before his side's Scottish Premiership match against Livingston on Wednesday.

Here are the key points from his press conference:

  • A top six finish would have been "utopia" for the club before a ball was kicked this season, but now admits he’ll be disappointed if they don’t achieve it.

  • A win over bottom side Livingston would keep Kilmarnock fourth in the table with just 13 games to go, and in with a very good chance of qualifying for Europe.

  • Kilmarnock are "in a decent place" following a recent run of just one defeat in their last 10 matches.

  • Feels they have recruited strongly with the arrivals of Kevin van Veen and Greg Stewart.

  • Adds that there’s not a great deal between many of the sides in the league at the moment, and he includes tomorrow’s opponents Livingston in that, despite their long wait for a Premiership win.
