Ex-Sunderland forward Kyle fighting for future contract

Have your say

FORMER Sunderland striker Kevin Kyle hopes to prove his worth to land another crack at the top-flight in Scotland.

Kyle, 32, left Rangers in March after ankle trouble meant he managed just four starts in a frustrating season.

But a fourth ankle operation, to sort a “tiny tear” on his cartilage, should leave the big ex-Scotland forward raring to go and he is planning to phone managers in the SPL to try to land a contract.

He said: “I’ve no bargaining power because of my injury situation – I know that. I’m not greedy but I won’t sell myself short. I feel I can offer something. I feel I can play in the SPL – I just need a crack at it and a bit of luck.”

Kyle has been working on his B Licence coaching qualification and added: “I can see myself being a manager. I’ve a lot of experiences in and out of football I can take into that next step.”
