Bristol Rovers have announced the appointment of new manager Mark McGhee.
The League Two side have clinched the Scotsman on a two-and-a-half-year deal in order to launch the club up the League Two table.
"We are delighted to bring Mark to the club," said chairman Nick Higgs. "We were very impressed with the quality of candidates for the position, but he was a cut above, he interviewed extremely well, and has a fantastic pedigree.
"Mark has a great track record, and has managed at the highest level in this country and in Scotland. His approach is very professional and he impressed us with his plans to take Rovers forward and get the club up where it belongs. We are all now looking forward to the rest of the season with Mark in charge."
McGhee will be in charge of Rovers for their away clash against Cheltenham on Saturday.
