Out of the managers in the SPFL there are only a handful who I think would realistically be considered.
Young (East Fife) outside bet
Robertson(Caley) further outside bet
Petrie(Montrose) has turned the around in last couple of years.
McKinnon(Falkirk) wouldn't want him.
Ian Murray( Airdrie) not too sure about him.
Out of work bosses.
Archibald. Highly unlikely, but him and Beattie are close.
Jim McIntyre. No thanks. He'd bring Dodds with him.
Gary Naysmith. Struggled at Queen's.
Alan Stubbs. Please no.
Alex McLeish??? Sorry, just my wee joke.
Of course it could be Kenny Miller ( although apparently he has said he doesn't want it)
But Thistle being Thistle we could just bring in a totally left field character like Mourinho.
As usual with Jags, interesting times ahead.
ETA. Just read an article in the Daily Ranger. (I know) saying, Lennon is favourite with McCall and Duffy in the frame. Beattie has been quoted as saying that if Archibald wants to come back he would take him. And that he should never have been sacked?? Oh dear!
