Clarke: I've never gone to a game thinking we're going to lose

Clarke: I've never gone to a game thinking we're going to lose

in #KillieStories October 29, 2017

Steve Clarke insists Kilmarnock were never unnerved by the prospect of Celtic matching their record of 62-domestic matches unbeaten as they claimed a 1-1 draw.

Jordan Jones scored to cancel out Leigh Griffths' opener two minutes before the break.

It means Killie have taken five points from a possible nine in Glasgow in October. 

Speaking about claiming draws away to Rangers and Celtic , Clarke said: "It is probably a little bit less than I would have hoped for to be honest.

"I was hoping we could win one of them.

"I have been in the game a long time, I have been involved in so many matches I would be embarrassed to count.

"I have never gone to a game thinking we were going to lose. Never. There is always a way.

"If you don't have that belief within you there is no point in going and that has been the message to the players in the last couple of games.

"It is okay to speak and say you will get a result but if you don't believe it inside it is harder to get and in both games the players have shown they do believe."
