Former Bradford City boss Stuart McCall is named as Scunthorpe United's new manager.

Scunthorpe United have announced the appointment of Stuart McCall as their new manager, three days after sacking Nick Daws.

The 54-year-old will be joined by assistant Kenny Black at Glanford Park for a fourth stint together in the dugout, while Andy Dawson will stay on as first-team coach.

McCall has been out of work since being replaced as Bradford City manager in February following a run of six defeats, despite guiding the Bantams to the League One playoff final in 2016-17.

Scunthorpe parted company with Daws last week on the back of a 5-0 loss to Fleetwood Town, leaving them on four points from four games prior to their 2-2 draw with Barnsley on Saturday.

Next up for United is a trip to eighth-placed Accrington Stanley next weekend.
