Chairman to offer best-ever St Johnstone manager Wright new deal

St Johnstone chairman Steve Brown has revealed that the club is set to offer manager Tommy Wright a new contract.

The 50-year old guided the Saints to their first-ever Scottish Cup trophy on the weekend in his debut season at McDiarmid Park and will now be rewarded for his efforts according to Brown.

"We've talked about it but it was on the back burner until after the final," said Brown.

"We'll thrash out the details. We know where we are, I've spoken to Tommy.

"He's no interest in going anywhere and I don't want him to go anywhere, either.

"There has never been a better St Johnstone manager than Tommy. I don't think St Johnstone have ever had a better season. If anyone says they have, they'll have to explain their rationale. We had two away victories in Europe to start with, including Rosenborg.

"We've had a top-six finish with three games to spare, did that at a canter, really. We got to the League Cup semi-finals, albeit we were soundly beaten.

"Tommy is definitely the best ever in our history. Without a doubt, without doubt.

"If you take into account the size of club we are, he's worked miracles. And, away from football, he's great. You can't not get on with him."
