Hibernian manager David Gray revealed that his biggest task has been to raise the morale of the players after the sacking of Jack Ross. Gray was made the interim manager after Jack Ross who was popular with both players and staff was sacked following a 1-0 loss to Livingston. Gray admitted that he has been trying his best to improve the morale ahead of their trip to St Mirren this weekend.
“It’s been a massive shock to everybody involved. It was a bit flat yesterday for obvious reasons. It’s never nice when two people lose their job. You can tell by the atmosphere around the place that it was a sad day for everyone involved.” Hibernian interim manager David Gray said after the sacking of Jack Ross. “You could see that by the reaction of not just the players but the wider staff at the training ground when they heard the news. I think that’s a credit to the manager and John Potter for the environment they created and how well-liked they are by everybody. It’s sad for everyone who was involved yesterday.”
“Training has been really positive today, the boys look bright. I think they know they have got to react from Wednesday night because, from a professional point of view, they weren’t good enough,” he added. “Today (Friday) has been all about trying to pick the players up and get ourselves ready for tomorrow. I’m not saying we forget about what’s happened but we have to use it to motivate us in whatever way we can to move forward and try and win tomorrow.”
