Allan Johnston
Johnston has been with Kilmarnock since 2004

Kilmarnock will not be renewing the contracts of forward Allan Johnston or the defensive pair of David Lilley and Grant Murray.

Former Scotland international Johnstone has reached the end of a two-year deal, while Lilley turned down the offer of a contract extension.

Murray, 33, has also reached the end of a two-year deal.

Meanwhile, captain Gary Locke is considering the offer of a coaching role at Rugby Park.

Kilmarnock have also advanced other player contract negotiations for next season and have no plans to reduce the first-team squad budget in preparation for next season.

The Ayrshire club increased their player budget over the past three seasons to £2m, but do not intend to increase expenditure on transfer fees, wages and agent costs.
