‘I fear for the centre-half who misses his header’ – Paul Warne discusses Guy Branston’s step into management

Paul Warne reckons Guy Branston has what it takes to succeed in management, especially if he needs to dish out the dressing room rollickings.

Branston is the latest ex-Rotherham player to step into the dugout as he has taken over at Chesterfield on a caretaker basis following Gary Caldwell’s sacking last week.


While the job will only be on a temporary basis, Branston has got a ringing endorsement from the Millers manager, who was his team-mate between 1999 and 2004.

“Brano is a great bloke, ridiculously enthusiastic, loves life, loves football more than most people I know,” Warne said.

“If you can get points on enthusiasm alone he will get points. They are playing Luton away and it is sort of like a free hit for him, I don’t think anyone expects them to go there and win but he will.

“He will enjoy doing it for as long as he does it. I think he knows a manager is imminent, but I think he will be good.

“He will definitely be  good motivator in the dressing room beforehand and I dread to think what he will say to the centre-half who misses a header!

“Brano will be excellent, he’s a good football bloke, he is really knowledgable, people who don’t know him might have a different view of him but he is pretty articulate, intelligent bloke.

“I really hope he does well. There’s me, him and Hursty at the moment and Hursty is winning!”
