Cam­bus lol­lipop man tells Jack it’s tough

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Staff re­porter

Cam­bus­lang man Jack Ross has taken over as man­ager at St Mir­ren but was warned by one of the town’s lol­lipop men that he would have a tough job on his hands.

The 40-year-old, who suc­ceeds Alex Rae, was tak­ing daugh­ter Meadow to pri­mary just hours be­fore be­ing un­veiled at the Cham­pi­onship strug­glers in Pais­ley.

And Ross said the kids traf­fic con­troller con­firmed what he al­ready knew when he said: “The lol­lipop man didn’t con­grat­u­late me, he just said, ‘tough job’. He’s not a St Mir­ren fan, he’s from Cam­bus­lang. He’s just a foot­ball fan.”

The former Al­loa boss, who stays in cen­tral Cam­bus­lang, is the fifth full-time man­ager at the Bud­dies in just two and a half years but is des­per­ate to lead them back into the top flight.

He said: “I was lucky enough to play here when Saints were a fairly-es­tab­lished Pre­mier­ship club so I un­der­stand it’s by no means un­re­al­is­tic to have that am­bi­tion to get back there.

“They have big plans for the club and I want to im­merse my­self in all as­pects of the club and drive that for­ward.”
