Swindon Town announce Kevin MacDonald as the new manager of the League One club.

Swindon Town have named Kevin MacDonald as the new manager of the League One club.

The Robins had been looking for a someone to take charge at the County Ground following Paolo Di Canio's resignation on February 18.

"This is a hugely important appointment at a significant moment in Swindon's recent history and we are delighted to appoint a football man of Kevin's calibre as our new manager," chairman Jed McCrory told the club's official website.

"He has great connections with top players and he is a proper football man. We have every faith for Kevin now to lead Swindon from the front at a pivotal moment in the campaign."

The 52-year-old, who won the double as a player with Liverpool in 1986, spent nine years as a coach at Aston Villa before his departure last year.

He takes over at Swindon with the team in fourth place in the League One table.
