Alex Bruce has revealed that he had to quit St Andrews in order to save his career.
Speaking to his local press, the the son of Steve said:
'I was being slaughtered by the press.
'I enjoyed working with my father Steve and his staff and the players were great but I was put under so much extra pressure for being the manager's son.
'As a youngster trying to make his way in the game you expect a bit of slack, but the press were slaughtering me.
'In one report in a Sunday national paper I was rated three out of 10 with the comment 'If he ever plays a Premiership game for his father again it will be a disgrace.' If it had carried on my career could have been finished.
'The pressure was too much as I felt I was playing as well as anybody else. I had to get out - and I could not have wished to join a better club than Ipswich. Now I have settled in I am determined to prove the knockers wrong.'
