Gold: McLeish Birmingham's silver lining

Birmingham City chairman David Gold says the appointment of Alex McLeish is the one big bonus from this season's relegation-threatened campaign.

He told Sky Sports: "There was one silver lining from all those difficult times. The one redeeming feature was that we brought in Alex McLeish and his backroom staff and I think they are an exceptional team.

"It takes time for people to settle into a new job - but that has been the silver lining in an extremely difficult season."
