Barry Ferguson appointed player manager of Clyde


Former Rangers and Scotland captain Barry Ferguson has been appointed player-manager of League Two side Clyde until 2017, following Jim Duffy’s departure to Morton.

Ferguson was caretaker manager of Blackpool in the second half of last season and helped the Seasiders stave off relegation from the Championship.

In a statement on the official Clyde website, chairman John Alexander said: “We are delighted that Barry has committed himself to taking Clyde forward as player-coach. He won us over with his vision for developing our squad and commitment to building on our existing youth policy, as he establishes himself as a manager in the Scottish game.

“We undertook a thorough recruitment process and we were fortunate to have many quality candidates keen to be involved with Clyde.”

The club also confirmed the appointment of Malky Thomson as assistant to Ferguson and former Rangers defender Bob Malcolm will also join the coaching team.
