ICYMI: Derby County Confirmed Gary Rowett As New Manager

share on:

Derby County have confirmed Gary Rowett as their new boss on a deal until the end of the 2018/19 season.

Gary Rowett, 43, has been out of work since being sacked by Birmingham in December but now has the chance to help the Rams get back into the promotion race.

He said: “I’m naturally thrilled to be appointed as the manager of Derby County and can’t wait to get started.

“I feel that I have a special bond with the club having been here as a player. During that time, we tasted success when we were promoted to the Premier League and moved to Pride Park Stadium under Jim Smith.

“Living in the local area, I understand the expectation of the fanbase and it goes without saying that Derby County has fantastic and committed supporters.

“I have coached in the Academy in the past so I know the values of the club and I am looking forward to sharing my experience and knowledge of the league with the staff and players.

“I am fully aware of the playing squad here and I am looking forward to working with them all first hand.”

Derby County parted ways with former England boss Steve McClaren just five months into his second spell at the club after a string of poor results.
