Former Celtic boss appointed at Coventry

Coventry City have appointed Tony Mowbray as their new manager. The former Hibernian, West Bromwich Albion, Celtic and Middlesbrough manager has been out of football since leaving Boro in October 2013.

"We've secured the services of a highly-rated, experienced candidate," said chief executive Steve Waggott.

"Tony is a manager who has enjoyed plenty of success at a higher level. He has experience in coming into a club in challenging times and steering them through to safety and, on top of that, has enjoyed promotion too."

Mowbray starts his reign with Coventry currently in 20th place in League One, a point clear of the relegation zone.

"We wanted someone who could come in and hit the ground running," added Waggott. "We have 14 important games left this season and the number one priority is to preserve our League One status.

"We were all very impressed with Tony during the interview process and it speaks volumes that the club are able to attract a manager of his calibre."
