McSheffrey makes Bruce plea

Birmingham winger Gary McSheffrey has called for the club to end the uncertainty over manager Steve Bruce by making a decision on his future as soon as possible.

Wigan approached Blues yesterday for permission to speak to the former Manchester United defender with a view to filling the vacancy at the JJB created by the sacking of Chris Hutchings last week.

The Latics are yet to receive an answer but it is understood Bruce, whose future at St Andrews remains unsure with the proposed takeover of Hong Kong businessman Carson Yeung still in the balance, is interested in speaking to Birmingham's Premier League rivals.

Fortunately the international break means there has not been huge disruption to Birmingham's Premier League campaign but McSheffrey is concerned the longer the speculation continues the more it will affect the club.

'These are the things as a footballer you expect. You can never be surprised in this game,' said the 25-year-old.

'There is some uncertainty over the future and we want it resolved as soon as possible.'

McSheffrey has backed the board to make the right decision but admitted Birmingham without Bruce - who has been at the club for six years and has turned down previous approaches from Newcastle and Bolton - would be a difficult prospect to consider.

'We want to be as one so we would be disappointed to lose the manager,' the £4million summer 2006 signing from Coventry told Sky Sports News.

'He (Bruce) has brought a lot of the players here and has done well. He is a big part of Birmingham City and has turned the club around, getting us into the Premier League.

'The current uncertainty is disappointing but I'm sure one way or another the club will go forward and the chairman and the board will make the right decision for the club.'
