“Naturally for any coach or manager who enjoys their job, the opportunity to work with players on a regular basis rather than two evenings a week is massively appealing. “To temper that I wouldn’t have jumped for any full-time opportunity, it had to be one I felt was right and there’s huge potential here from the stadium, training ground and the new ownership in particular.”Following relegation in 2014 St Mirren have found life tough in the second tier, sacking Ian Murray and Alex Rae during their time outside the top flight.But Ross believes the club are well equipped to rise up the table and secure a place back among Scotland’s elite under the guidance of Gordon Scott. He added: “It’s not an unrealistic aim to say that. It’s something the new owners, myself and supporters will want to do and we’ll be striving towards that in the near future. It’s not something we think is 10 years away.” New St Mirren manager Jack Ross has targeted a return to the top flight in the very near future as he outlines his plans for the Paisley side. The 40-year-old, who will officially make the switch from Alloa next week, also insisted he wouldn’t have made the move for just any full time club.A former player with the Buddies, Ross explained his decision to leave Recreation Park for a return to Paisley.He told STV: “You always have an affinity with clubs you have played with and more than that I think playing here I understand the potential of the club and where perhaps it should be in the standing of Scottish football.
