Former Celtic defender to be confirmed as Ross County boss

Malky Mackay looks set to replace his former Celtic teammate John Hughes as Ross County manager. Hughes opted against staying in Dingwall after sealing a stay in the top flight courtesy of a second half comeback win over Motherwell. Now the former SFA Performance Director looks set to be unveiled as the new County manager today.

Mackay managed Cardiff until December 2013 and during that time lead them to a League Cup Final before departing and spending a short spell at Wigan. Mackay spent five years at Celtic Park making 45 appearances and scoring 7 goals. Mackay left for Norwich City in September 1998 after helping Celtic stop Rangers 10-in-a-row in the May.

The 49-year-old, who started his career at Queen’s Park, has a knowledge of Scotland’s talented youth and will be a coup if County can seal the deal.

Celtic’s John Kennedy had been suggested for the job but now it looks as if County’s Roy Macgregor has acted swiftly to replace Hughes with another former Celt, Mackay.
