  6. Next St Mirren Manager - Merged

    When he left QP, he went to Rangers for a bit working in their youth academy. He joined East Kilbride last year as Assistant Manager but I'm not sure if he's still there
  7. Next St Mirren Manager - Merged

    http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/local-news/saint-mirren-latest-former-club-8881890?platform=hootsuite Former Nottingham Forest and Derby County boss Billy Davies also held talks with the club last night. Meanwhile, Gus MacPherson remains the frontrunner in the betting for the Greenhill Road hotseat. MacPherson has admitted he understands why he has been heavily linked with a return to Paisley. But he has stressed that no contact has been made between himself and the club. John Hughes and Jack Ross are still among the early favourites, while Clyde manager Barry Ferguson has seen his odds cut overnight. Ferguson was previously linked with the position prior to Alex Rae being appointed last December, but remained at Broadwood with the League Two charges. Other names that have entered the fray included famed former Buddies midfielder Billy Stark and ex-Celtic stalwart Peter Grant, with the former currently assistant manager to Darren Young at Albion Rovers.

  11. The Alex Rae Interviews

    Saints continue to wait for their first win of the league season after losing to Queen of the South. Manager Alex Rae gives his thoughts. He said: “We’re obviously in a difficult place. We’re conceding goals with considerable ease at the moment and it’s not the young ones, it’s the senior ones who are causing the problems. Unfortunately we’re making it very difficult for ourselves. We equalised and we allow them to just waltz up the pitch unopposed and get a tap in. It’s extremely disappointing. “We created a couple of chances in the first half where their keeper pulled off a couple of decent saves. We need to remain positive. When I was at Dundee, we started the season exactly the same the opening five games without a win and we finished third so we know we can turn it round.” Today’s results means Saints are now bottom of the table and the fans made their displeasure known during and after the match. The manager added: “I can understand people’s frustration, I’m as frustrated as anyone. This has got nothing to do with tactics, this is purely down to individuals who, unfortunately, are crumbling under a bit of pressure.”

  13. The Alex Rae Interviews

    St Mirren manager Alex Rae was relieved to see his side make it to the last 16 of the IRN-BRU Cup this afternoon having fought back from a two goal deficit against Albion Rovers in Coatbridge. He said after the match: “We’re just pleased to be in the next round. The positives are we have got Rocco [Quinn] some minutes and Gary [MacKenzie] some minutes and we had an opportunity to look at one or two things and we’ll assess over the next couple of days, when we watch the footage again, what we can take from it.” Saints found themselves behind early and the manager is looking for better from his players. He said: “The fact of the matter is if you defend like that it leaves a lot to be desired. We need to do so much better. I’m not wanting to pull the wool over anybody’s eyes, it is nowhere near what we are looking for. “It [the return of Quinn and MacKenzie making his debut] gives us options as obviously we are a wee bit short on the ground but we need to dig in because we are playing through a patch just now that is becoming difficult.” Under-20 player Andrew McDonald had his first outing as a first team player. Alex said of McDonald: “We wanted to have a look at him as he done well through the week with the reserves [under-20 side] and it gave us an opportunity to see him.” With the game going to extra-time it was a long debut outing for MacKenzie who also played through the week. Alex said: “He played 75 minutes in the reserves the other day, we thought we may well have got it done by 90 minutes but obviously had to play another 30 which wasn’t ideal because it runs the risk of injury but it’s in the bank now and so that is a positive.”

    Ben Gordon is also suspended for this game so looks like Webster and McKenzie could play at Centre-Half
  15. The Alex Rae Interviews

    St Mirren scored a late equaliser today to get a share of the points against Ayr United at Somerset Park. After the match St Mirren manager Alex Rae looked back on the ninety minutes. He said: “If you don’t defend a simple ball into the back post you’re going to become unstuck and we didn’t do that again. I want us to be a wee bit braver on the ball. It looks like we’re asking them to shell the ball and we done some stuff in the last couple of days about playing the lines because we felt as if we could get joy by doing that and we’re just shelling balls up. It’s just a wee bit of a [lack of] confidence – taking the easy option – but I’m pleased we got the point but it’s nowhere near acceptable. “One of the things that gives you confidence is how you are playing yourself. When you’re getting on the ball and passing the ball. At no point have we told the boys to start shelling the ball. There’s the odd diagonal that might be effective when it is up to John Sutton but it becomes an easy option. “We tried to utilise Ryan [Hardie’s] pace in behind and when we get the service into him he just sets it on a plate. “We wanted to be brave. We played three at the back and wanted to try and take the game to Ayr.”
  16. Rae Must Go!

    Well that's another Saturday ruined.. Thank You Mr Rae I would of liked to have seen AR's Plan B but I think he'd need to have a Plan A first. Tactically Clueless. Close the door on your way out Alec
