Contract no issue for McLeish

16 October 2009 10:28
Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish insists uncertainty over his contract will not distract anybody at St Andrew's from helping keep the club in the Premier League. The former Scotland boss has be assured of his future with the Blues following the takeover of the club by Hong Kong businessman Carson Yeung last week. McLeish has been promised major transfer funds for January and insists his rolling contract, which is reviewed at the end of each season, is not an issue. "I have a rolling contract but a new contract is the furthest thing in my mind to be honest," he said. "I've got my head down here at Birmingham City since the day I arrived about two years ago and it's been really about staying in that league. "We couldn't do it at the end of my first six months here but we came back up the first time. "Again we can talk about all these things if that is achieved. But I'm not interested. It's not about money for me. "It's about ambition, it's about winning, it's about getting these players to get tougher and stronger mentalities to help them become better players."
