Sports: Mark McGhee Appointed Dundee Manager


Mark McGhee has been appointed Dundee manager until the end of the season.

The 64-year-old replaces James McPake who was sacked by the Dens Park club on Wednesday, despite winning his last two games.

McGhee’s return to the Scottish top flight five years after he left Motherwell will see him reunite with the club’s technical director Gordon Strachan, after the pair worked together in the national set-up.

Dundee face Celtic on Sunday but McGhee will not be in the dugout as he begins a six-game ban that was handed out at the end of his time at Fir Park.

Simon Rusk, who worked alongside McGhee at Stockport, has also joined Dundee and will form part of the new coaching team.

A club statement said: “Dundee Football Club are delighted to announce that Mark McGhee has today been appointed manager of the club.

“He arrives at the club with Simon Rusk who will join Dave Mackay in assisting Mark.
