No happy return for Craig Brown
He may have a wealth of managerial experience behind him but Craig Brown has never managed in the top flight in Scotland. His time spent in the domestic game in Scotland was at Clyde, all underneath the Scottish Premier League.
This was not a great location to help him gain top flight experience but it was perfect to be part of the Largs mafia which has sewn up the coaching pathways of Scottish football for a number of decades.
Brown’s first match in charge of a top flight Scottish team ended in defeat as the Hearts revival continues.
Yet again, Michael Stewart was the goal scoring hero for Hearts but surprise surprise, he managed to score from open play.
Yes, up until now, every Michael Stewart goal had came from the penalty spot but Nade set up the captain to give Hearts a 1-0 lead which they managed to hold on to.
What was interesting to note was that in his post-match press conference, Brown stated that “any normal football person would see that Motherwell deserved to win.”
This is the sort of embarrassing guff that Brown would recite after Scotland were defeated. Who can forget the “ohh we got more corners than the other team” comment after a 1-0 loss in Greece?
He may only be at Motherwell for a short spell but it is good to see that Brown hasn’t changed.
Jambos, will this run of form be enough to beat Hibs on Sunday?
