Brian Little - A True Professional

Last updated : 28 February 2002 By Andy Beill
"We had a very frank, open and honest discussion. The outcome was that we felt it was in the best interests of everyone concerned - and not least the football club - that Brian left.
"I want to stress how difficult a decision it was for Brian to make and how sad I am about the whole thing. I have nothing but respect for Brian as a person and as a manager but things had not worked out as we had hoped.
"Brian never gave anything less than 100 per cent and it was a pleasure and a privilege working with him. He is a very honest person and I wish him every success in whatever he decides to do."
