Former Caley Thistle skipper Warren could imagine Highland return one day
HE is as Bristolian as Banksy – but Gary Warren insists his heart is still Highland.
The former Caley Thistle captain and fans’ favourite, now with Exeter City, would love to return north in a coaching capacity once he hangs up his boots.
The veteran of the club’s great endeavours under Terry Butcher and John Hughes remains 100 per cent committed to playing for now, but the ex-PE teacher hankers after a move into coaching or management in the future.
On Tuesday next week, it will be exactly two years since Warren raised the Challenge Cup as captain under John Robertson.
It was a sweet moment, having twice been cruelly denied two cup final appearances – the 2014 League Cup final defeat to Aberdeen and the unforgettable 2015 Scottish Cup final triumph against Falkirk.
But Warren’s thoughts this week very much with old colleagues and staff at the Caledonian Stadium.
