“That’s what we are. We are quite transparent, I certainly am, and if I feel the players need to know certain things they will be told.

“Whether it’s good, bad or indifferent they have to understand the truth and not listen to rumour.

“They need to know facts and I will give them hard facts.

“The club will give me hard facts and if I think it needs transferring on to the players they will get it.”
