Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC is extremely pleased to announce that manager Terry Butcher is staying at the club.
Terry returned north this evening after discussions with Barnsley FC over their managerial vacancy. He met ICT chairman Kenny Cameron and indicated that he was committed to seeing out his contract with the club.
Terry commented: "I was pleased that Caley Thistle gave me the opportunity to talk to Barnsley, who were excellent to deal with."But I have decided that my future lies at Inverness. We have been going extremely well to be second in the SPL, still in the Scottish Cup and with a League Cup semi final to look forward to later this month."I have also brought people to this club and, on reflection, feel that I should remain with them to try and continue the good work.My focus is now firmly on that."
Chairman Kenny Cameron said: "We´re delighted that Terry Butcher is to remain with us and the fans will greatly welcome the news."When Barnsley made their approach we felt that out of courtesy we should allow Terry the opportunity to meet with them. But it is a huge relief that he has opted to stay."These are exciting times at this club under the management of Terry and Maurice Malpas and we now look forward to maintaining what has been a wonderful season."
