KILMARNOCK boss Alex Dyer has revealed he doesn’t think splashing the cash while Britain battles the coronavirus pandemic is ethical.

Clubs were dealt with a crushing blow this week when it was announced plans to begin the phased return of supporters had been pushed back due to rising Covid-19 cases.

And while Dyer is confident Kilmarnock will be able to withstand the continuing financial implications of the pandemic, he won’t spend money on players unless he really has too.

He said: "Billy (Bowie) and the board are there and if we need anything, they have been good up to now.

"We have to be sensible in what we do. It's important that it doesn't look like at this time when everyone else is struggling, the football club is going out and spending a lot of money. That's not right."

When asked if it was ethically wrong to be spending money during the current crisis, he replied: "Of course, we're all human beings, we all worry about other people - or we should do - so the most important thing is that we've got enough players at the football club.

"If we need one or two because we'd gone down with injuries or looked like we needed something else, then I'd speak to the powers that be.

"But we don't buy players so it will be just about signing someone and giving them a wage.

"At the same time we understand that there are people out there who have lost their jobs, so we have to be mindful of that.

"It's not my place to say what other clubs should do in that sense. I worry about Kilmarnock and I worry that we do the right thing. We don't always get it right but we try our best. Other clubs will run their club how they run it."
