Harry Redknapp has taken the managerial job recently vacated by Gianfranco Zola at Birmingham, as they try to remain in the championship.
Zola resigned from the job on Monday, after a poor run of form and a recent 2-0 loss to Burton Albion put Birmingham at the risk of relegation.
Birmingham are three points off the drop zone and have only three more matches to play to stay in the championship.
Redknapp, 70, has managed at Tottenham and a host of clubs and will have the job of guiding them to safety.
Redknapp has 34 years experience in club management and will be in charge of the matches against Aston Villa, Huddersfield and Bristol City.
