Last updated : 24 October 2009 By Brian Cartlidge

Former Blues boss Bruce, who was returning to St Andrews for the first time since his departure almost two years ago, was greeted with loud applause from the home fans as he made his way to the visitors dug-out before the kick-off.

"I had a great time here," he said

"Although it ended badly, I was here for the best part of eight years, so for the reception I thank them.

"It is strange being back. Nothing has changed much, but it's always disappointing when you get beat."
