It was obviously hard to take when he signed for United but he did what the vast majority of pros would do, he signed for a team in a higher league that represented a step up in his career for more money without having to uproot his family. Could he have signed a year's deal to make sure we got money? Probably, but I doubt anyone would be willing to pay a decent fee. At the time nobody outside of the Old Firm were paying fees (not much has changed in that respect). The situation is completely different to McDonald who was pretty much guaranteed a move down south and there were plenty clubs willing to pay for him. He was also 4/5 years younger and much more talented. Football is a short career, I don't really think we can blame him for putting himself and his family first to be honest. By all accounts he's a good coach and will no doubt do a good job. Happy to have him on board.
