DRFC Dad hoping to keep his lad

DRFC Dad hoping to keep his lad

Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels is keen to keep his son, Dean Shiels at Rugby Park after his loan expires.

The Doncaster Rovers midfielder is on loan with Kilmarnock until the New Year.

The Northern Ireland international has been a regular in the Kilmarnock side since arriving in July, making eleven appearances and scoring three goals, including the opening goal in the 3-3 draw with Celtic last Saturday.

Shiels senior is hoping to sort something out with Doncaster in the near future although he admits he is yet to speak to Rovers boss Dean Saunders. 'We're trying to extend Dean's loan. We're trying to see if we can do that. We'll sit down and talk with Dean and Doncaster. I've not had talks with Doncaster yet, but I plan to. I want to extend it and hopefully we can do. Dean is a top player and he helps the team a lot. He has done well since he came but we didn't expect anything less than that as he's a creative midfielder. That's the type of player we need for the way we play so hopefully we can keep him here.'

Shiels has struggled to hold down a regular starting place at the Keepmoat since signing for Doncaster from Hibernian in 2009.
