Dundee have appointed former player John Brown as their interim manager until the end of the season.
Brown replaces Barry Smith, who was sacked on Wednesday with the club 15 points adrift at the bottom of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
The club announced the news with a statement on their official website.
It read: "Having been inundated by high calibre candidates over the last few days, one man stood out as perfect for the position of interim manager of Dundee FC.
"John Brown is a man with real heritage and history at Dundee FC and when at Dens Park in his time as a player, he was an real inspiration, a fans favourite and scored some vital goals and he has never lost his feelings for the club."
