Rae: We Need An Experienced Manager

Morton chairman Douglas Rae is hunting for an experienced manager to replace James Grady, according to a couple of statements on gmfc.net.

"Having only just managed to retain our 1st Division status after the final game of the season against relegated Ayr it is very evident that we need to engage an experienced manager to take the Club forward," explained an unattributed statement on the club's official website.

Whoever wrote the article - I'd guess at Crawford Rae - also stated that the club ('we') thinks Grady will become a good manager in future but that Morton could not afford to give him the time he needed to grow into the job. "We believe that James Grady has the makings of being a first class manager and has a superb eye at pinpointing talent but unfortunately with falling crowds coupled with the worst financial results in the Club’s history we do not have the luxury of time."

The chairman made his own statement in which he also wrote that we must acquire an experienced manager and that change was needed because the management team were "unable to stem the tide of losses which the team suffered".

Derek McInnes is a perfect example of what can be achieved when an 'inexperienced' manager is allowed to manage.

I sincerely hope this works out well!
