Terry Butcher: Inverness got raw deal over final

TERRY Butcher may no longer be the manager of Inverness Caledonian Thistle but, given the opportunity, he is evidently still willing to go to bat on behalf of his former club.

That was made plainly clear as he waded into the row regarding whether the Highlanders are receiving a raw deal in the build up to their historic League Cup final.

Inverness’ current incumbent, John Hughes, opened that particular can of worms during his recent press conference as he lambasted the decision to make Inverness play a re-arranged Premiership fixture just four days before the Parkhead showpiece. He also took the opportunity to flag up a series of refereeing decisions which proved, in his view, that the men from the Caledonian Stadium have endured the thin end of the wedge with alarming regularity this term.
