"Certainly, that’s been the case in my first few years in management. You live and learn and at times we’ve got it wrong but we make no apologies for getting over-excited at times. This is a pressure environment with big responsibility and sometimes you have to lose yourself in that but, in terms of being humble and respectful, it’s something I’ve tried to pride myself on throughout my career in the main. I’ll try and do that as a manager and I expect everyone else to try and do the same. The words ‘humble’ and ‘respect’ need to remain at this club forever, not just now and in the short term.

"Players are human beings and it’s an emotional game. We’re a team and we’re individuals and there are times we want the players to celebrate and enjoy themselves when they’re on the back of a big result or they get over a big hurdle. We’re humans on a big journey and we’ve got to enjoy the ride as well.”
