St Johnstone chairman Steve Brown has issued a statement in the wake of an approach from Dundee United asking permission to talk to McDiarmid boss Tommy Wright over the Tangerines’ vacant manager post.
The Perth supremo is determined that the Northern Irishman, who guided Saints to a stunning 5-1 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday, is going nowhere.
That is something he has stressed in the statement and he insists Wright himself is committed to staying at St Johnstone.
Brown said: “The manager has never indicated that he wishes to leave the club and I have spoken with Tommy regarding this particular matter and he has reiterated to me that he is more than happy at Saints.
“Since I appointed Tommy, I have had a good working relationship with him and we are both striving to maintain the success we have enjoyed in recent seasons and therefore, regardless of any approach and any level of compensation that might be offered, it will be flatly turned down.
“It is important to me that all St Johnstone supporters are assured that we intend for Tommy to remain at the club beyond his current contract which already runs to June, 2017.”
