Former Sunderland winger Johnston: So hard to leave Queens

Have your say

FORMER Sunderland star Allan Johnston is excited about his new role as Kilmarnock manager.

But he admits it was a wrench to leave Queen of the South after a success-laden first season as boss. “It was a really hard decision, to be honest,” said Johnston.

“We had built a really good team and had a good relationship with the directors and supporters at Queens. It was a massive decision to leave but too big an opportunity to turn down.”
