Everton caretaker boss Ferguson: I backed Silva to the hilt

Everton caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson says his target is to lift spirits around the club while he's in charge.

The Scot accepts he won't be considered as a permanent replacement for the sacked Marco Silva.

But he said, "ou would never turn it down, would you? You would never knock it back.

"I know we are in a bit of trouble and they are going to have to take time to find candidates and go through that process.

"I backed Marco to the hilt, as I back all my managers. They know that. Everyone knows I am here for Everton. Always. We are Everton and I am a part of that."
