Middlesbrough have named former Celtic boss Tony Mowbray as the new manager at the Riverside.
The 46-year-old, who has also had spells in charge of West Brom and Hibernian, takes over following Gordon Strachan’s departure last week.
Boro currently lie third from bottom in the Championship having won only three games all season.
A press conference will be held at 1530 BST to unveil Mowbray, who played for the club for 10 years.
The former Boro captain will be assisted at the club by Mark Venus, who previously worked with Mowbray at West Brom, Celtic and Hibernian.

Whilst clearly Tony Mowbray is something of a hero at the Riverside following his spell at the club is the Scot the right man to take the club forward? The 46 year old former defender had a pretty good spell at Hibernian before he got his job at the Hawthorns where he gained promotion and then followed that with relegation for West Brom.

Then he got his dream job at Celtic which it is fair to say turned into a nightmare and now he finds himself moving from the Glasgow side to Middlesbrough, much like his predecessor Gordon Strachan. Steve Gibson will be expecting Boro to start to make their move up the table and whilst promotion this season may well be very tricky after the awful start to the campaign, Mowbray will be expected to take the club back to the top tier within 18 months, is Mowbray the man to do the job?
