Richie Foran: No panic from Caley

Richie Foran: No panic from Caley

Foran has been helping to take training after Butcher took assistant Malpas to Easter Road as the pair take on the challenge of improving Hibernian.

But Caley Thistle sit second in the Scottish Premiership and Foran does not feel they desperately need a replacement in the short term.

Foran told BBC Scotland: "It's not important to get someone in as quickly as possible.

"I spoke to the chairman and told him there's no rush. I've guaranteed him the boys will be working hard."

"There's no rush or panic - we'll take our time and I'm sure the board will take their time making a decision."

Foran worked under the management team at Motherwell as well as Caley Thistle but he refused to take their exit to heart.

"We're all a little bit sad - he was wonderful for us and we had huge trust in him and Maurice, but things move on and that's football," he said. "We're focused on the job ahead and the journey we're on."

The 33-year-old added: "The gaffer was a great motivator, but our players motivate themselves. It's not going to be a problem at all.

"We were given five days off, but we told them we didn't want it, we want to keep it going and we don't want any change.

"Yes, the boss is going to be missed, but we'll continue to strive for a good season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
