Tony Mowbray named new Middlesbrough manager
Press Association - 5 years ago

Tony Mowbray has been confirmed as Middlesbrough's new manager. The club has called a press conference at the Riverside Stadium for 3.30pm today, where the appointment will be officially announced.

An inspirational captain who led the club from liquidation to successive promotions, Saltburn-born Mowbray was ever-present as Middlesbrough completed a memorable rise from the old Division Three to the top flight between 1986 and 1988.

Mark Venus, who played for Hartlepool, Leicester, Wolves, Ipswich Town and Cambridge United, will be Mowbray's assistant. He has previously been his assistant at Hibernian, West Brom and Celtic.

Mowbray was made manager of Celtic in June 2009 but a string of poor results led to the club sacking him in March this year.
