The Championship club will stand by the Scot despite a poor start to the season that has seen them win just one of their first six games, following Premier League relegationEXCLUSIVE

Bolton are ready to stick with manager Owen Coyle despite their dismal start to the new season.
Wanderers have lost three of their first six league games and are 15th in the Championship, despite being one of the favourites for automatic promotion back to the Premier League.
Coyle has admitted that he is under pressure ahead of Saturday's trip to Sheffield Wednesday, but Goal.com understands that he has been given reassurances over his future.

While some reports have suggested that Coyle has two games to save his job, Bolton executives actually take the opposite view, feeling that a couple of positive results will change the complexion of their season.
Gartside has a strong relationship with the manager and will not press the panic button, despite conceding earlier this month that results needed to improve.
The loan move for Stephen Warnock was an unofficial vote of confidence
"If the people that make the decision think someone else would be better for Bolton, then I would be fine with that," Coyle said earlier this week.
"As a group we have to stay strong, stay together, stay resilient and show our quality – not just talk about it, but deliver. I stress that to the players.
"I accept we could be more ruthless and clinical in front of goal because we've had chance after chance. When it does fall into place, I truly believe that run of winning games will come."
