Tony Mowbray installed as new boss at Middlesbrough

Steve Claridge by Steve Claridge / 26 October 2010, 12:48

In a quick turnaround at the Riverside Steve Gibson’s task of replacing former manager Gordon Strachan who left his post by mutual consent earlier this month has been completed by the installation of the fans choice and also the bookies favourtie to be the next manager of Middlesbrough, the former Celtic boss Tony Mowbray. He will be fully introduced by the board in a press conference that is scheduled later today, this will be the second occasion that Mowbray has succeeded Gordon Strachan in a managerial role having taken over at Celtic from Strachan.

Tony Mowbray is of course no stranger to Middlesbrough having made his debut as a defender for the side and played for them at their former ground Ayresome Park back in 1982 and he played there until 1991, during this period he made 348 appearances for the Boro and even managed to score on 25 occasions. He left to join Celtic for a fee of around £1 million and it was also a side that he would end up managing, but for only 9 months, and his record here was almost as good as that of supreme failure John Barnes!

He will have his work cut of for him as currently Boro are lying third from bottom in the nPower Championship table following a very poor start to their season, they are currently on just 11 points having only won 3 games and drawn once out of 13 games so far this season. He is sure to be given a rapturous reception a the Riverside Stadium as he makes his first full game in charge this weekend with be a home fixture against bottom club Bristol City, a loss here would be a devastating start to his new job.
