Sissoko scored his first goal for Kilmarnock in a 6–2 win over Airdrie United in the second round of the Scottish League Cup. Since joining Kilmarnock, Sissoko says he is desire to stay in Scotland, due to of Italian hooligans – as a citing reason to stay in Scotland.[9] On 20 November 2010, Sissoko received a red card – for the first time in his Scottish career – in a 3–2 loss against Rangers.

After being priced out of a permanent move for the player,[10] Kilmarnock were eventually allowed to re-sign Sissoko on another season-long loan deal on transfer deadline day in August 2011.[11] Sissoko scored his first goal in his second loan spell at Kilmarnock in a 2–0 win over East Fife in the quarter finals of the Scottish League Cup. On 18 March, he played in the 2012 Scottish League Cup Final which Kilmarnock won after beating Celtic 1–0.[12]
