There is 'loyalty' and there is 'stupidity' ... and Gibson is walking a very thin line.

Steve Gibson: "We will not have a scapegoat at this football club, it will not be Gareth Southgate.

"He is a good man, an intelligent man capable of being a top, top manager.

"Gareth has convinced me he knows what it takes to get us back up.

"He is a man I know and admire and we will work together in getting this football club back into the Premier League.

"What we need is the support of the fans and the town, and let's work together to get the club back in the Premier League.

"You may disagree with my decision and I respect that, but I have to make the decision and I am convinced that Gareth is the right man for the job."
