Scotland skipper backs boss' style

Scotland skipper Barry Ferguson believes George Burley will get the national team playing football the right way.

Burley was confirmed as the new Scotland boss after the SFA agreed a compensation deal with Southampton for their manager.

Burley impressed Ferguson by leading Hearts to the top of the Scottish Premier League in 2005 before a disagreement with majority shareholder Vladimir Romanov led to his shock departure.

And the Rangers midfielder believes the passing game he introduced at Tynecastle will suit the national team.

'I've only ever heard good things about George, although I have never really spoken to him,' Ferguson told the Scottish Sun.

'It was well documented that his reign at Hearts ended in unfortunate circumstances. But he had them absolutely flying at the start of that season and he looks a good manager.

'There was no doubt he transformed the whole club during that short spell in charge.

'He also comes across as a real football person.

'He likes his teams to get the ball down and play it on the deck. In my mind that's the right way to play. We certainly have the players for that style.'
