Peterborough United have confirmed the return of Darren Ferguson as their new manager.
Ferguson, 38, replaces Gary Johnson at London Road, where he enjoyed back-to-back promotions before leaving in November 2009.
Johnson left the League One club on Monday night after disagreements with the chairman, Darragh MacAnthony.
Ferguson, who has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract, was dismissed by Preston North End just after Christmas, but has the chance to take Peterborough up for a third time after they moved back into the play-off places with a 2-1 win over Brentford last night. (Guardian)
Good to see that The Posh have seen sense, they did of course sack Darren Ferguson after he had achieved back to back promotions and now Sir Alex’s son is back at London Road. Given that the Man United boss took back three loan players from Preston when they axed Ferguson junior, perhaps the League One side could try to bring them in to help their push for promotion back to the Championship?
