'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Higgs Backs McGhee

Bristol Rovers Chairman Nick Higgs insists Mark McGhee is still the right man to take the club forward and has given McGhee his full backing.

Speaking to TIB Higgs said 'Mark was brought to the club because we felt he was the right man to do a long-term job and that remains the case.

'Plans are already in place to strengthen the squad after Christmas. We have a list of targets and have been meeting up with agents over the past ten days.

'There is no problem between Mark and the players already here. We just can't seem to get it right on the pitch at the moment and no one is more frustrated about that than I am.

'The supporters pay their money and are entitled to criticise at times like this. I understand their feelings and accept that the reaction to Saturday's result was one built up over a number of weeks.

'I can assure them that everyone at the club is working as hard as possible to turn things around. Relegation from League Two is a frightening prospect that cannot be ignored, but I firmly believe we will climb the table. The last thing I want to do is destabilise the club with another managerial change. The board will continue to back Mark and the players as much as we possibly can.'


Fans on many forums have been calling for McGhee to be sacked, but even if McGhee goes it will not end the problems at our club they lie a lot deeper than Mark McGhee.
