Britton 'excited' by calibre of Thistle boss applications
Gerry Britton says the Jags have received managerial CVs from all over the world.
Partick Thistle chief executive Gerry Britton has said the Jags have received applications from all over the world as they search for a successor to Alan Archibald.
The Firhill side brought an end to Archibald's five-year tenure in charge after sliding to eighth in the Championship at the weekend.
Britton, who is standing in as caretaker boss, said the search for a new manager was an "exciting process" as the club have been able to identify a handful of stand-out candidates already.
He said: "The phone started ringing I think five minutes after the club statement had went out.
"We are an attractive proposition, the club is prudently managed by the board, we're on an even keel financially, we have the prospect of a new training ground on the horizon so any manager looking for an opportunity sees that as very attractive.
"There has been managers from outside the UK... from Asia, Africa, you name it, we've had interest from all over as well as a considerable number of domestic applications."
Britton said the Jags aren't seeking a specific manager to fill the hotseat, but whoever does take charge must have the personality to lead an immediate promotion charge.
He added: "We don't have an identikit manager, it's more about a personality, a character, a mindset, is far more important, rather than a specific CV.
"The club took a chance with Alan, he gave us five years of fantastic service.
"There's never been an identikit or protocol to follow here, there are good applicants out there and we'll consider them.
"It's an exciting process."
