“I go back to one of my first defeats as a manager, at 32 years of age. I didn’t expect it. I went into the game eyes wide open, that this was going to be easy. We lost 5-2 to Albion Rovers. I was the manager of East Stirling, the players were on £5 a week or something like that. I came home and I said ‘if I don’t get Alec Ferguson in my team, I’m not going to succeed’. So I made sure that my players had a mental toughness about them, from that moment on.”

I knew that, looking at certain players, I could see traits that told me they were Manchester United players, or Aberdeen players, or St Mirren players. I could see that in certain players I watched.
“Instinct was actually essential. Also on impulse, in some cases it’s choosing the group. We’re playing particular groups and I ‘d have an impulse: ‘right, I’ m not going to play particular gamers. I’ll play other gamers.’ I would not state it’s instinct, I ‘d state it’s impulse.”
