Raith Rovers Scottish League One

Rovers return for McGlynn

Raith Rovers have named John McGlynn as their new manager following the recent departure of Barry Smith.

The former Hearts and Livingston boss returns for a second spell at Stark's Park, where he was previously in charge from 2006 until 2012.

McGlynn, 56, had recently been involved with Celtic in a scouting role but will be back in the dug-out for Raith Rovers' trip to Dumbarton in Ladbrokes League 1 on Saturday.

He will be assisted by Paul Smith, who worked alongside McGlynn when the Kirkcaldy club won the Second Division title in 2008/09.

Rovers chairman Bill Clark told the club website: “When we started the search for a new manager John’s name made its way quickly to the top of our list.

Along with Paul Smith, we believe we have appointed a hugely-experienced management team that gives us stability, as well as the ability to get the most out of resources and players."
