Sandy Stewart Clarets No 2.

Sandy Stewart Clarets No 2.

St Johnstone, caretaker manager Sandy Stewart has agreed to follow his former boss, Owen Coyle to become assistant manager at Turf Moor as predicted.

Alexander 'Sandy' Stewart was Owen Coyle's assistant at McDiarmid Park and has just helped the Saints secure a 3-2 Scottish Challenge Cup final victory over Dunfermline this weekend.

'It's the hardest decision of my footballing career,' said the former Airdrie player (pictured in his playing days above)

'The opportunity to work down south to help Owen try to take Burnley into the Premiership is just too great,' he also said.

'Who knows, maybe in two or three years time I'll look back and regret the decision but that is the chance you take and I know that I'll regret it if I don't take the opportunity to try it out,'

The date of his departure has yet to be decided, but it looks likely he will remain in Perth until the Saints sort out a new manager.

'Owen is keen to have me down there as soon as possible but he is very aware of the situation with Saints and is very grateful to them for the way they handled his departure.

'He won't be putting pressure on me in terms of timescales'

Sandy is now officially on board, joining today. He had this to say:"I'd been a manager myself for four-and-a-half years, and I enjoyed it, but I enjoyed being Owen's assistant at St Johnstone as well, so it was weighing up whether I wanted to be my own man again, or come down here at have success with Burnley. "All in all, I'd made the decision by Sunday night, and I told the St Johnstone chairman and managing director that, before they considered me for the job, I was going to go to Burnley, so he could take my name off the list. "They intimated that I could have had it, but I decided after the final I was going to go to Burnley and try something really exciting."
