'Killie take precedence over Scotland all day long'

The international break probably came at the wrong time for Killie after their memorable destruction of St Mirren.

It's not long now until Scotland kick-off the Euros against hosts Germany and it reminds me of a question that is often asked of fans. Would you rather see your team win the league or see Scotland win a major tournament?

As a Killie fan it may be more realistic to ask when will the Old Firm finally depart to another country? The club v country argument gets punters arguing like few other topics, and I confess that Killie take precedence for me all day long.

There's no doubt that a Scotland triumph would have almost all the country partying for a fortnight, but having watched Killie home and away for over half a century they pretty much dictate my life.

We take our next step towards world domination with a trip to Tynecastle this Saturday and a win would go a long way to seeing us grab a European spot for next season.

Needless to say, if it comes to a choice this summer of Germany in June or Ireland in July, the Stranraer ferry can reserve my seat.
