The Englishman has become known for his unusual pep talks before matches and a cup tie in Dingwall was no exception.
He instructed his players to think of words beginning with the letter 'I' before taking on Ross County. Butcher was content with the some of the answers, but likely that much happier with a 1-0 win.
"I said before the game I wanted the players to be like wasps, to 'irritate' the Ross County players and be pests," said Butcher. "So, I asked the players if they had any other words beginning with 'I', and there was 'incisiveness', 'inject' pace, and Scott Robertson came up with 'in the next round', which I thought was pretty clever."
