As reported by the Chronicle, former Rangers striker Kris Boyd has voiced his concern over Ian Cathro.
Cathro officially departed Newcastle yesterday and is about to embark on his own managerial journey.
Boyd however, clearly feels Cathro is not ready, speaking in his column is the Scottish Sun, Boyd said: “He’s probably not been this excited since FIFA 17 came out on PlayStation.
“But Ian Cathro is about to find out what football’s like in the real world. No harm to the guy set to be named as Hearts boss. I was on the same Pro Licence course as Cathro, and he’s definitely obsessed with coaching.
“He’s one of the up-and-coming, modern-era coaches who can organise a session just by flicking open his laptop.
“There isn’t a session out there he couldn’t get on to his Macbook. But setting up a presentation to a group of players is all well and good.
“That does not require man management skills, which is part of the game he knows absolutely nothing about.
He does however, admit that he could be wrong, adding: “Time will tell if I’m wrong on that. But if I was a Jambo I’d be worried.
“For me the practical stuff involved in coaching is easy — it’s dealing with highly-charged players that’s the hard part.
“And for me Cathro is way, way out of his depth.”
