JOHN BROWN IS INTERIM MANAGER
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.
His time at Rangers was highly successful with 6 League titles numbered amongst a glittering career and once more he was an inspirational leader. He has been a coach at Rangers and Clyde and was a key member of the Ibrox coaching and scouting set up until last summer.
Having met and spoken with members of the Board and CEO Scot Gardiner this week, his passion for Dundee was instantly evident and his willingness to step up to the plate for the remainder of the season alongside his immediate understanding of what we as a club need from the position, convinced us he is the man to address the challenges ahead of us this season.
There is still a lot to play for this season with some vital games coming up and John we will make sure that the Dundee fans see and understand that he is here to make a difference and he is looking forward to working with Assistant Manager Ray Farningham, the coaching staff and our full squad of players.
The club will continue to assess and review the longer term situation but as has we have highlighted, due to the mixed challenges of our current league position and the uncertainties over League reconstruction, it is impossible for us to set a budget for next season and coming years. Hopefully that position will become clearer very soon and we will then look to appoint a Manager in a full time, longer term position. In the meantime we hope that every Dundee fan will rally behind John and the team for the remainder of what can still be an exciting and historic season.
There will be a press conference at Dens Park on Monday at 12oclock
