Inverness Caledonian Thistle have named Richie Foran as their new boss following the recent departure of John Hughes.
The 35-year-old former Motherwell player has been at the Highland club since joining from Southend United in 2009 and has agreed a four-year deal as manager.
Chairman Kenny Cameron told the club website: "We are delighted to have Richie on board as the new manager of Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC and we believe the length of contract demonstrates commitment on both sides.
“The board received and reviewed a high number of applications for the vacant position and Richie quickly became our preferred candidate. This was cemented further during several meetings to discuss the role, his approach and view for the future."
Foran added: “This is a great opportunity and one I am going to relish. My intention will be to preserve continuity at the club while bringing a new freshness and playing style.
“I want to play exciting, attacking football which entertains the supporters. I’ve identified areas in our play that I think I can improve, and I’ve identified what kind of players we need to bring in.”
