The oldest professional club in Scotland? Celtic? Rangers? No the oldest professional club in Scotland was founded 20 miles south of the Old Firm giants in Kilmarnock way back in 1869.
The town that gave the world Penicillin and Johnnie Walker Whisky had to wait nearly a century for their football team to be crowned Scottish champions.
The 1960s were Kilmarnockâ€™s golden years - KFC really were finger-licking good! Under the management of Willie Waddell, Killie were runners-up for four years from 1960 to 1964 before eventually wining their only championship in 1965. A couple of years later Kilmarnock reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup (then known as the Fairs Cup) going out to Leeds United.
That was one of the nine seasons in which Killie have played in Europe; theyâ€™re one of a handful of Scottish clubs that have played in all three European competitions (European Cup, Cup Winners' Cup and the UEFA Cup).
Local girl, BBC Newsnight presenter and â€œthinking manâ€™s tottyâ€ Kirsty Wark is apparently a fan and has allegedly been spotted wearing a Kilmarnock scarf at Television Centre.
