Michael Johnston admits he faces a constant battle at Kilmarnock Football Club.
The Rugby Park club enjoyed some rare success this season, lifting the League Cup for the first time in their history, marking their first piece of silverware since 1997.
And whilst supporters would love to see Killie build on this glory next term, chairman Johnston still has to deal with a debt of a reported £9million.
"We don't pay transfer fees and certainly cannot change that on the back of winning the League Cup this season,” he told the Daily Record. "We'll continue the same signing policy.
"Basically, we will bring in and develop young players and find out-of-contract players with good experience to add to our squad. It is a constant battle to balance the books.”
