Old friends prepare for battle

The pair were players together at Aberdeen over 20 years ago, and Gunn counts the Blues boss as one of his best friends in the game.

He said: "Alex McLeish and I do speak and we've talked in recent weeks in the build-up to the game.

"He was one of the people I spoke to during my decision to take the job here and I have a lot of respect for him.

"I never thought I'd be standing beside one of my best mates in football and pitting our wits against each other.

"I used to clean his boots at Aberdeen but come three o'clock on Saturday we'll be concentrating on our own clubs and trying to achieve the result we both want."
