Young Scottish manager, Alex Neil, has achieved a lot in a small amount of time in the managerial arena.
In his first position Neil led Hamilton Academical back into the top-flight in Scotland, before doing exactly the same with Norwich, with whom he led up to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
However, he lost his job the following season following a poor run of form. As of July 2017 he has taken on the manager role at Championship side Preston North End.

Alex Neil Quotes
I felt when it was 2-1 we looked the team controlling and having the pressure. All you can ask is for them to give everything and they did that.
I feel we have been really unfortunate, not in terms of bad luck, but in making crucial errors at bad times.
Maybe in seasons gone by Norwich have been looked at as having a soft underbelly. I don't think we have anything like a soft underbelly.

The Sack Race's Opinion
Alex Neil is a young manager who has made major impact both sides of the border and is likely to have a long and successful career. The way he led the Norwich into the Premier League was remarkable and it was impossible not to sit up and take note. Definitely one of the brightest young gaffers in the game, despite Norwich's relegation.
