Henning Berg and Allan Johnston have been interviewed for the vacant manager's job at Kilmarnock.

STV understands the pair spoke to club officials on Friday as the SPL side seek a replacement for Kenny Shiels, who left earlier this week by mutual agreement.

Berg has been out of work since leaving Blackburn Rovers on December 27, having spent just 57 days in charge.

The Norwegian ended his playing career in Scotland with Rangers, having won the English Premier League with both Blackburn Rovers and Manchester United.

Berg, 43, also has managerial experience with Norwegian clubs Lyn and Lillestrom.

Johnston is currently in charge at Queen of the South and was named as the country's manager of the year after guiding the side to success in both the Second Division and Challenge Cup.

A former Kilmarnock player, the 39-year-old has only been in charge at Palmerston Park for one season in what is his first managerial role.

STV understands interviews with other candidates will take place next week with the club aiming to appoint a new boss as quickly as possible.
