Glasgow’s ‘master race’: how Scottish managers are bossing the Premier League
From time to time Sir Alex Ferguson is wont to refer to his compatriots –
jocularly, but not in a fashion that invites contradiction – as ‘the master
6:40AM BST 11 Aug 2011
This weekend, as he contemplates his 20th successive campaign in the Premier League, the Manchester United manager can back his assertion with the remarkable truth that the division boasts no fewer than seven Scottish managers – outnumbering the five native Englishmen in charge of clubs.
Even more astonishing is that the incomers were all born within 13 miles of Glasgow city centre, a radius that would be much smaller but for the fact that Steve Kean first saw light of day in Cumbernauld – best known to football fans as the location for Gregory’s Girl.
When the wealthiest league in the planet imports its largest cluster of coaches from the environs of a city that is not even within its boundaries, a phenomenon is in progress.
The geography is undeniable but the genesis is elusive. Some have speculated that the recipe includes such ingredients as the Glaswegian accent – a challenge to outsiders in more than one respect – or that the city is the last bastion of an industrial heritage that yielded the great coaches of previous generations, men such as Sir Matt Busby, Bill Shankly and Jock Stein.
Yet the same tradition also produced what once seemed an unending stream of playing talent, now reduced to a comparative trickle. So how is it that Manchester United , Liverpool , Everton , Aston Villa , Blackburn Rovers , Bolton Wanderers and Norwich City will take the field this week under the supervision of men whose origins almost lie within the same postcode?

“There must be something of a cyclical effect,” says Craig Brown, the former Scotland manager, now at Aberdeen – and, at 71, the oldest manager working in the Scottish Premier League.
“Football is not immune to trends, but it also has to be said that Scottish managers have always been a feature of the English game and if you consider how Scotland regards football, it should not be any great surprise that there will be times when many or most Scottish managers will come from the Glasgow area.
“Football is the unchallenged national sport for Scots. Cricket has its following but nothing like the impact it has in England, rugby is strongest in Edinburgh and the Borders and although Scotland has many golfers, golf is generally felt to be played by the more affluent.
“On the other hand, football is followed intensely in every part of Scotland, but the heartland is Glasgow. The people are immersed in it.
“And it is not just the seven managers you have mentioned who come from thereabouts. There are also a lot of highly regarded coaches like Billy McKinlay, Steve Clarke or Gary McAllister who hail from Glasgow or nearby.
“None of them were born with silver spoons in their mouths – more like plastic spoons.”
Certainly, the seven Premier League incumbents were not united in boasting distinguished playing careers.
True, Dalglish was a superstar with Celtic and Liverpool, while Lambert won a European Cup medal with Borussia Dortmund, but Ferguson was not regarded as more than a journeyman forward during his spell with Rangers (although he had enjoyed a prolific season at Dunfermline where his goals helped the team to within a point of Celtic in 1966).
In Moyes’ case, when he was made an Honorary Fellow of Liverpool John Moores University, the citation referred to his “workmanlike playing career”. As for Kean, if the Blackburn manager’s playing career is taken as any guide to his coaching ability, it would be the equivalent of a stealth bomber flying too low to be detected by radar.
Like Moyes and Lambert and Dalglish, he did have a spell with Celtic but never made a first team appearance, after which he went to Alloa Athletic, Academica Coimbra, Bath City and Newbury Town.
Perhaps, though, such ordinariness is its own engine. Stein once observed to this correspondent of Ferguson that playing limitations sometimes expand the mind.
“The best players don’t usually make the best managers because it all comes easily to them,” said Stein. “They’ve never had to think like an ordinary player so they don’t know how to relate to them.
“Alex was always competitive but not as gifted as some other players, but it made him think about the game and you can see that in the way he’s always looking for the wee edge that can win you a match.”
Jimmy Armfield, the former Blackpool and England defender and previous manager of Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United, regards the seven Scottish gaffers as a constellation, but Ferguson as the supernova.
“Walk into every single Premier League club boardroom and you’ll find they all hope to unearth the next Sir Alex,” is the view of Armfield, still close to the game as a summariser on Radio Five Live.
“He’s the only manager in the Premier League who can put pressure on his club. Mind you, the others tend to have a quality that is very valuable in this era – in an age where the media is so important they all know how to speak their minds and journalists love that.
“It must be gut-wrenching for the game in Scotland to see how much money flows through the Premier League. Celtic and Rangers would be a match for any team in the Premier League if they had the same income, but I think that the biggest expression of the Scottish game comes from the managers working in the top division in England.
“Sir Alex is the role model. He can handle money, he can handle the biggest players in the game and he is a huge influence on the Glasgow lads – they can feed off each other, you know.
“So it doesn’t surprise me that chairmen are looking for someone like him and it probably helps if you sound like him. But I tell you this – he will be incredibly difficult to replace.”
That in the end may be the defining test of Ferguson’s fellow citizens in the Premier League – can any of the master race prevail when the race to succeed the master begins?

List of current Premier League and English Football League managers
Jump to navigation
Jump to search
There are 92 association football teams in the top four tiers of English football , all of which have a manager , or pair of joint managers, sometimes given the alternative title of head coach. The Premier League and the English Football League are the only fully professional football leagues in England. The Premier League consists of 20 clubs at the top of the English football league system . The remaining 72 clubs are split into the three divisions of the English Football League: the Championship , League One and League Two .
Some managers listed have had more than one spell in charge at their current club or had spells at more than one club, however this table deals only with their current appointment. This list includes every manager currently managing a club in the Premier League and the English Football League, in order of the date that they took up their appointment: this is not necessarily the date on which they were appointed, so there may be a discrepancy between the date appointed and the time as manager.
Jim Bentley is the longest-serving current manager, having managed Morecambe since 2011.
