“They’ve already seen in the last couple of months, especially in the last three games, what to expect from the boys. I’ll be watching and supporting.”
Simpson, emotional at the full-time whistle after a goalless draw with Chelsea, thanked the Blue Army for their reception as he called time on his City career.
He added: “To get a reaction like that, and to get on the pitch, I’ve finished my career [on a high].
