Move for Gus is still on hold

Paisley Daily Express - - Theti Cket -

St Mir­ren are no closer to agree­ing a deal with Gus MacPher­son – with boss Oran Kear­ney still to sit down with the pro­posed tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor.

Saints have been given per­mis­sion to speak to their for­mer gaffer and cur­rent Queen’s Park man­ager about the newly formed role.

How­ever, Kear­ney in­sists de­tails are still to be ironed out be­tween him­self, the club, and MacPher­son.

He said:“I have an un­der­stand­ing of the need for a tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor and it is some­thing we are look­ing at.

“We need to be smart. I men­tioned ear­lier in the week that I don’t know Scot­tish foot­ball and where ev­ery player is. Re­cruit­ment is go­ing to be very im­por­tant for us in the com­ing months. It’s im­por­tant I sur­round my­self with good peo­ple.

“Brian Rice has been phe­nom­e­nal from a back room staff point of view and a tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor of the likes of Gus could be very valu­able as well.

“It’s prob­a­bly not set in stone the ex­act role of that job. I maybe have ideas, the chair­man maybe has ideas and pos­si­bly Gus might have as well.

“It is about get­ting time to all sit down and come up with ex­actly how that works and what it might look like.”
