Rams boss Pride Park future in doubt


Only hours after the Rams gained promotion to the Premier League, the speculation over the future of Billy Davies has raised its head. The Scotsman had just guided the Rams to the Barclays Premiership with a 1-0 Coca-Cola Championship play-off final win over West Brom at Wembley. Stephen Pearson was on target for the Rams, taking them back to the top flight after five seasons in the wilderness.

But this time though it wasn`t the tabloids speculating it was Davies himself, has he refused to bring an end to speculation about his long-term future despite guiding Derby back to the Premier League.

The reports of a strained relationship between Davies and managing director Mike Horton have refused to go away in the second half of this season, and he didn`t dampen talk that he may not be around to lead the Rams next term.

He said: 'I don't think there's anything guaranteed 100% in life.
'I want to have discussions for sure and there's lots of talking to be done.
'I'm not saying I don't want to be Derby manager, I'm saying that I don't think in life anything is 100% guaranteed.
'Now we'll sit down, have a chat and see what happens. I'm not prepared to discuss it at the moment and I'm not prepared to go into specifics.
'I'll have a discussion with people at the club and we'll see what happens after that.
'I've never said I'm leaving but it was always my intention to get to the end of the season and have a discussion.'

The success on the park this season has been down to Davies` good management and if the Rams are not careful they may lose him, which would be a great shame. He has brought some talented players to Pride Park and turned them into a team. This showed in yesterday`s great victory, all players fighting for every ball a trait drilled into them by Davies. Come on Derby let`s get this sorted, and let Davies start his preparation for next season.
