Kilmarnock have interviewed former Blackburn Rovers boss Henning Berg for the vacant managerial position at the club.
The SPL side parted company with former manager Kenny Shiels earlier in June, and Berg, who played for Rangers in the Scottish Premier League, has now emerged as a contender for the role.
“I spent a few hours with Henning at the club yesterday (Friday),” Kilmarnock chairman Michael Johnston told BBC Scotland.
“We showed him our facilities and discussed the current first-team squad, and the budget he would be operating with if he were to become our new manager.”
Berg had an ill-fated spell in charge of Blackburn last season, taking charge of just 10 games and winning just once in that period.
But he may face competition for the role, after Johnston also confirmed that he held talks with Queen of the South manager Allan Johnston.
“I haven’t agreed a compensation figure with Queen of the South, but I have a fair idea of what it would be, and it’s certainly within our budget,” he continued.
