Championship side St.Mirren have appointed Jack Ross as their new manager.
The 40-year-old Alloa manager will leave the League One side after Saturday’s Irn Bru Cup game against Bala Town and take up the role with the Paisley side on the 10th October.
Ross played for the Buddies between August 2008 and July 2010, making 79 appearances and scoring twice before moving on to Hamilton Accies.
Speaking to the official St.Mirren website following his appointment, Ross said:
He told St Mirren’s website: “I’m delighted to be named the new manager of St Mirren Football Club. I have fond memories of my time in Paisley as a player and can’t wait to get started.”
Club chairman Gordon Scott added: “I was very impressed with Jack when we got a chance to meet and am delighted to have him on-board as our new manager. I look forward to working alongside him as we look to bring success to the football club. One of the big plus points for me was Jack being with Hearts at a time at a time when their supporters got involved in the ownership of their club.”
Ross replaces Alex Rae who was sacked earlier this week with the Paisley side rooted to the bottom of the Championship table.
