No Gigg return for Trevor Carson, says Pompey chief Mark Catlin
TREVOR Carson will not be heading back from Portsmouth to Gigg Lane despite the sacking of Kevin Blackwell.
The Northern Irishman will not face the Shakers on Saturday, as per the terms of his 93-day loan and is still on course for a permanent departure in January.
But ex-Bury commercial director Mark Catlin, now chief executive at Fratton Park, has stamped out rumours the 25-year-old could be handed a second chance at Gigg Lane.
“The agreement we have is not with the manager but the chairman, Stewart Day,” Catlin said.
“Normally, any new manager would want his players back from loans to have a look at them. But this deal was brokered directly with the chairman, not the manager, that’s the truth.”
