You’ll know what his decision will be after his disciplinary hearing today.
No punishment= Scotland job.
Touch line ban= staying with Killie.

Ban or no ban he won't be staying with Killie.

Better get used to the idea.

This. I lost money last summer after Robbie Neilson was a 100% stick-on to be St Mirren boss. 

I think they should leave Clarke alone. There's no need to f**k over a club's progress for the sake of an utterly poisoned chalice of a job.

Plus, I really can't see the appeal of taking it, if you're Clarke (maybe aside from the money). He's doing an amazing job, turning Killie into a force, and the Scotland job will always come round again in 18-24 months. Or 18-24 months after that. He could take it then.

I personally hope Clarke stays at Killie - but based on his comments when he got sectarian abuse at Ibrox, his house and family are still down south. The Scotland job, aside from the games themselves would largely involve watching English games to check up on players, with occasional commutes to watch some Scottish stuff. Being back with his family down south while being paid a lot more would be an attraction, no?

I think they'll ban him regardless. However, if the punishment is strangely post-dated to start after Sunday that would be an indication of him taking the Scotland job.

I think he might even take AD to the Scotland setup.  The board will speculate on another fairly big appointment, I can't see us going down the route of just appointing the Assistant in the style of Locke/McCulloch.

Holding out hope that he will appoint Gemmill as FT assistant manager & put Lord Dyer in as PT coach, allowing him to keep on with us, potentially with Craig Bryson as a player/AM alongside Boydie as coach.

Michael O'Neill was 1/12 to be Scotland boss.
Larsson was 1/10 to be Celtic boss.
Clarke may well be Scotland boss ( I hope not) but bookies regularly are clueless and just react to folk betting on rumours.


Bookies are very rarely clueless. If some utter imbecile* has lumped £1000 on anyone being appointed manager based on what they read in the rumours section of the Daily Record, the bookies are only smart to react accordingly.

Manager market bets require no thought whatsoever. People who enjoy the skill of betting avoid it completely. The small number of bets placed drive the market relatively sharply.


*I’m going to split my share of the winnings with Keith Jackson if it is Clarke.

Apparently Billy Bowie will be sitting down with SC to discuss his future on Monday..... no decision on SC's future before then.

For once we have a Chairman who will have the hard conversations & will do what he can for the club, hopefully he can persuade SSC to stay for another year but if he doesn't, at least we have someone who literally does know his shit.

Record

Kilmarnock Standard......

Bowie said: “I’ll be dealing with this on Monday, sitting down with Steve and working out where we go from here. Right now my main concern is getting the last game of the season out of the way and getting as many fans as possible into Rugby Park.

“The next morning, I’ll have a conversation with Steve to find out what he plans to do. He’s obviously talked about being unsettled and maybe a little home sick so I want to sit down with him and discover what he wants to do about it.

“Our talks will be about the future for Kilmarnock and we’ll discuss everything there is to discuss on Monday. Steve plays his cards close to his chest but it’s definitely time for us to have that discussion.”

Will be.

Surely they'll have had a discussion before now (Clarke and Killie).

He’s staying. Yippee.


It’d be very typical if the SFA banned him from his first two games in charge of the national side.
