Gordon Simpson has provided us with some Killie related international stats which I thought worth sharing with no match this week…
Joe Nibloe (1929-32) is our most capped Scottish player with eleven, he made five consecutive appearances twice.
Bobby Ferguson played six consecutive, with Stephen O’Donnell equalling that last weekend.
Ian Durrant made five consecutive appearances in 1999.
The most Kilmarnock players capped by Scotland in a single match is three, Mitchell, Agnew & Templeton v Ireland (A) 1908.
