The Scot has been heavily criticised in recent years for not speaking out against the Glazer family, whose leveraged takeover of the club has cost an estimated £680million in associated costs.
"There is a misconception about the Glazers buying the club," he told PBS.
"It created hostility and different factions but you forget, the minute it became a PLC someone was going to buy it.
"The Glazers did buy it. And in my time with them - they were nothing but supportive - very strong, single-minded people but always supportive of the manager and the things that happen in the club.
"I've absolutely no hesitation in supporting the way they're going about the job - very low key."
