Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has defended the club's decision not to sign Alan Gow from Rangers during the transfer window due to a failed medical. When asked whether he was disappointed Wolves were unable to sign Gow, McCarthy told Sky Sports News: "It was for Alan first and foremost. For us as a team then, because I thought he would have added to our squad.
"I said to him 'You're kind of fortune I've revisited it because if you get the knock-back you rarely go and try again'. It's something I wanted to do, but our medical team found something that we wouldn't sign him with.
"I'm not going to get into any arguments with anybody. There were some suggestions we should have pushed it through. No. We won't, because we don't think it's right. Alan understood.
"Now he can get it sorted out, which I'm sure he will. He'll be back in three months and back in time for the start of next season. He'll be fresh and ready to go and probably a better player for it."
