Europa League ‘magic’ for McInnespublished at 17:50 11 May

FT: St Mirren 0-1 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock manager Derek McInnes is asked by BBC Radio Scotland how he feels after securing Europa League football.

“It’s magic hearing that,” is how the Rugby Park supremo responds. “It’s something we never started
out to do, but for the last few weeks, it’s something we’ve been searching for.

“To do it with another clean sheet, it was important we had another big hurrah in us
and we were good enough in difficult circumstances.”

McInnes also highlights the impact of his front four, wingers Danny Armstrong and Matty Kennedy and strikers Kyle Vassell and Marley Watkins. Vassell netted the decisive goal today.

“It’s quite fitting my captain scores the goal that gets us
to Europe,” McInnes adds.

“As a front two, those have been terrific, the combination between
the two of them. I play with two wingers and two strikers, not because they’re
luxury players, it’s because they’re responsible and work as hard as anybody else,
and I know they are capable with big moments.”
