Retro News 1989: ‘Hands off my squad’ is Duffy’s response to transfer speculation
‘‘Utter rubbish,’’ was Duffy’s reaction. ‘‘I have not received any bids for Stuart Burgess or an other member of my first team squad and I have been given an assurance from the board that I do not have to sell a player to make ends meet. This squad will remain intact until I decide to sell anyone.’’
Commenting on the £150,000 price tag reportedly placed on Burgess’ head, Duffy added: ‘‘If someone made me an offer like that I wouldn’t be interested. Burgess is worth much more than that. He won’t be going anywhere.’’
Burgess, who missed the Bairns’ match against Morton through suspension, will return to first team action on Saturday against Meadowbank.
Two points would set the Bairns up perfectly for the crunch match of the season – against league leaders Dunfermline on Tuesday night.
