Mowbray takes Middlesbrough reins

26 Oct 2010 - 12:36:45

Former captain Tony Mowbray has been confirmed as the new manager of Middlesbrough.

Mowbray, who spent 10 years as a player with the Teessiders, has been handed the reins following last week's departure of Gordon Strachan.

Strachan stepped down on October 18 with the pre-season promotion favourites languishing down in 20th place in the Championship table.

Forty-six-year-old Mowbray had been out of work since being sacked by Celtic in March.

The Saltburn-born defender made 424 appearances during a decade with Boro before a £1million move to Celtic in 1991.

The former Hibernian and West Bromwich Albion boss will be assisted at the Riverside Stadium by long-time number two Mark Venus.

Paul Ince, Paul Jewell, Alan Curbishley and Phil Brown were all also linked with the managerial vacancy.
