Bolton Wanderers appoint Tony Mowbray
Bolton Wanderers have appointed former Celtic and Middlesbrough head coach Tony Mowbray as their new head coach
It is his first managerial role since leaving Middlesbrough, where he stayed there as the head coach from 2010, spending 3 years before leaving by mutual consent.
Mowbray described joining Bolton as a "unique challenge", and is looking forward to working at a "historically successful club".
He first played at Middlesbrough in 1982, where he became club captain in 1986, where he established himself as a legend before leaving for Celtic.
After playing for Celtic from 1991-1995, he later moved on to Ipswich Town, where he played for five years, becoming the team captain.
Once his playing career finished he moved into coaching, starting as a first team coach at Ipswich Town. He had a brief spell as caretaker manager of Ipswich, following the sacking of George Burley and prior to the appointment of Joe Royle.
He's managed Ipswich Town (interim manager), Hibernian, West Bromwich Albion, Celtic, Middlesbrough.
"We are delighted to have acquired Mowbray's services here at The Trotters", said Bolton Wanderers chairman Phil Gartside.
"He is widely respected, has experience and has proven himself to be a successful team builder."
In recent years, Bolton have come so close to gaining promotion from the Championship via play-offs, only narrowly losing out.
