Sevco caretaker Graeme Murty has made a bizarre reference to rowing as he prepares for his first SPFL match in charge of the tribute act.

Rowing has a prominent place in the history of the old club with William Struth taking over a manager after William Wilton drown in a boating accident near Gourock.

It seems that Murty is full of the same management buzzwords as Warbo with an emphasis on personal development rather than winning football matches.

There has been no fanfare to greet Murty’s appointment which is for the foreseeable future with Sevco unable to afford a new management team.

Barring a complete disaster in the matches against Dundee, Inverness Caley Thistle and St Johnstone Murty will lead Warbo’s failures out at Celtic Park on March 12.

Speaking to the club website he claimed: “It is less about me changing things, it is about me talking to the players and asking them what they need. All I am here to do is to facilitate the players playing well.

I said to them today British Rowing have a fantastic phrase: “Does it make the boat go faster?” and if it doesn’t then they strip it and get rid of it.

That can be personnel, it can be meetings, it can be anything else and I said if you have an issue with anything I do, anything that we do structurally, timing wise or training wise then come and knock on the door and we will see about it.”

If Sevco enter Sunday evening six points behind Aberdeen Murty may find himself looking for a fast boat across the border to meet up with Warbo.
