England strikers coach Allan Russell takes Aberdeen assistant manager's job

England strikers coach Allan Russell has accepted the assistant manager's job at Aberdeen.

Since March 2017 he has been employed by the FA to improve the team's goal threat, particularly from set-pieces. He has worked closely with Tottenham striker Harry Kane in the side.

But Russell, 40, has just accepted a job as assistant first-team coach at Aberdeen following the appointment of former Newcastle and Watford defender Stephen Glass as Pittodrie boss.

England manager Gareth Southgate and the FA have no problems with Russell splitting his roles.

He looks certain to continue through this summer's Euro 2020 and on to the World Cup in Qatar in winter 2022.
