THERE will be a time when Steve Clarke sits down for a second and allows himself a proper smile.

But it's not right now and when it does eventually happen don't blink or you'll miss it.

Clarke is not the kind of guy to stop and take the pats on the back - even when the awards are piling up.

The Kilmarnock manager last night added the Scottish Football Writers' Manager of the Year award to his growing list of accolades on the back of a stellar season.

But the gathered photographers had to click quick to catch a glimpse of the gaffer's gnashers.

The former West Brom and Reading manager - and potentially next Scotland boss - is nowhere near the grumpy man some would believe but he's deadly serious when it comes to his profession.

"Who's up next? Who's injured or suspended? Enjoy it? I'm not sure but I do take a lot of satisfaction from it.

"Don't get me wrong, at the end of the season you can sit back and reflect on what we've done but not for long - because it's on to next season.

"You have people chapping your door about new contracts, players wanting more money or wanting to leave, players who want to run their contracts down, you're on the phone all the time looking to find suitable additions or replacements.

"It's time consuming but I always try to get at least a week away to switch off. I don't do anything to get away from it during the season - I watch football.

"The other night I watched Leeds against Derby then it was West Brom and Aston Villa and a bit of Inverness v Dundee United. …
