Former St Mirren manager Jack Ross has opened up on the Sunderland Til I Die documentary from Netflix - admitting he hates the idea of allowing a camera crew inside his dressing room on match days.

Streaming giants Netflix and the Black Cats were praised for the access all areas doc which aired last year and is still available to subscribers online.

Cameras followed ex-Sunderland manager Simon Grayson during his torrid time in charge at the Stadium of Light before he was axed for Chris Coleman.

But the Welshman's time as boss was also poor and saw them relegated from the Championship to League One.

Jack Ross - who had recently brought St Mirren back into Scotland's top flight - walked into the role after Coleman was sacked but struggled to warm to the documentary crews.

And he explained how he was completely against filming as he gave his team talks before, during and after games.

Speaking to BBC Scotland, Ross said: "Purely as a football manager, I said I'd prefer not to have it. We didn't want any more distractions. 

"I would never grant dressing room access as I felt it would dilute the message I was trying to get across to the players, but there was a certain amount of onus on me as a manager to help them. 

"I had a television crew in my car driving home with me at nights. Whether that gets used or not I don't know."
