It's going to be a helluva tough ask for McPake to go from team mate, to youth coach to first team manager and expect a certain level of respect. The thing that goes for him is most of the squad will be his own. If Kenny Miller stays around, he could be pretty key to the managers authority in the dressing room.
Charlie Adam to be announced in the build up to the Blackpool game. 8,000 punters to turn up to see him unveiled and sing his name. Money, baby!
Then he gets injured and is out for the season. Admin, baby!
