Break suits the boss just fine

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

St Mir­ren man­ager Oran Kear­ney ad­mits the win­ter break has done him a world of good... even if he hasn’t had a mo­ment’s rest.

The Bud­dies boss re­vealed that while his play­ers ben­e­fited from get­ting to put their feet up for a few days, he was hard at work iden­ti­fy­ing new sign­ings.

The North­ern Ir­ish­man has al­ready snapped up Aberdeen mid­fielder Greg Tansey.

How­ever, he ad­mits the break has given ev­ery­body at the club a well-earned chance to recharge their bat­ter­ies fol­low­ing a busy De­cem­ber.

Kear­ney said: “The win­ter break has come at a good time for me per­son­ally with the amount of busi­ness we’ll do in Jan­uary, both in and out.

“It’s good self­ishly from that point of view. It’s the first time I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced such a busy month.

“With the vol­ume of games that were planned for De­cem­ber, I don’t think they’ve any choice but to give the play­ers a win­ter break.

“And there were a few clubs who had even more games than us.

“Even with full- time play­ers, that de­mand is sore on ev­ery­body. I think ev­ery club just took 10 days off just to let peo­ple re­cover, both phys­i­cally and men­tally.”
