Partick boss Archibald not seeking playing comeback

Alan Archibald insists he is not looking to make a return to the playing arena after turning out for Partick Thistle's U20s this week.

The 36-year old Jags boss, who retired as a player last year, filled in for Thistle's U20s in a 2-2 draw with St Johnstone but says he has no plans to pull on the boots permanently.

"It was good to get back out there. I think it was the first time in a year," he said.

"We had a wee bit of a crisis with our centre-halves in the 20s. I just thought I would help them out.

"I don't know if I really helped them out to be honest, I think I was to blame for two goals."
