Mark McGhee has been appointed the Dundee manager until the end of the season. He will replace James McPake who was sacked despite winning his last two games as manager. The former Scotland assistant manager will be reunited with technical director Gordon Strachan who worked with the national team. He believes they can stay up and is interested in the job long-term.
Yes. If we weren’t in the predicament we’re already in, we would have already committed to longer,” new Dundee manager Mark McGhee said. “It’s not just our choice, it’s also the club’s choice. Everyone wants to keep their options open, let’s see how it goes and if it goes well, but our ambition would be to be here longer. Part of that is, of course, about the fans. We have got until the end of the season to really prove ourselves to the fans. I’m up for that, I really want that opportunity.”
“Dundee Football Club is 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,” a club statement said. “Vastly experienced in management Mark’s first role was with Reading back in 1991 following a successful playing career that saw him turn out for Newcastle United, Aberdeen, and Celtic amongst others. He moved in management to Leicester City then onto Wolverhampton Wanderers, Millwall and Brighton and Hove Albion before heading north of the border.”
